Hi,
I need to upgrade my Mac and so will have to move on from the express port connection. There seem to be two options - either buying the thunderbolt adapter or a new mxo2 mini with built in thunderbolt. The latter option is a lot more expensive so the question is, apart from the convenience of having only a single unit, are there any other advantages of the dedicated unit, like speed etc? Or, will buying the adapter give the same functionality at the same specifications?

Hi.

There is no MXO2 device with build-in Thunderbolt support. The solution for you is to purchase a Matrox Thunderbolt adapter. This will work fine with any MAC system with Thunderbolt support.

Note that our latest MAC driver is 4.6.0. Please review the list of supported applications: http://www.matrox.com/video/media/pdf/support/mac/mxo2/doc/en_Matrox_MXO2_Supported_OS_and_Applications_4_6.pdf

If your desired application is not in this list, please let me know so I could make recommendations.

Thanks. I was wrongly informed it seems. I will buy the adapter. I use Premier. I have CC but prefer CS6 and though not now supported (which is very disappointing) it seems to work nevertheless.

You're welcome. Your observation regarding CS6 is consistent with other user feedback.
