Can I use this to connect a Samsung T5 SSD to my Mac Pro 2013?

Hi, I have a Mac Pro (Late 2013) with 6 Thunderbolt 2 ports, I need extra hard drive space and would like to take advantage of the 20 Gbps Thunderbolt speeds. I see the Samsung T5 SSD is USB-C. So if I buy this adapter will it connect a Mac Pro to a Samsung T5? I know similar questions have been asked but I couldn't see a clear Yes or No answer...

  • It would NOT benefit you to purchase this. The Samsung T5 SSD doesn't support Thunderbolt 2, it supports up to USB 3.1 (although it apparently can only go as fast as a USB 3 connection). Your Mac Pro has 4 USB 3 ports, so you should just use the USB-C to USB-A cable included with the Samsung T5 SSD.
