I have a Mac Pro (2013 - desktop) that has Thunderbolt 2. Can I get an adapter to drive a Thunderbolt 3 display? (Samsung 34" C34J79x Display)

I bought the Thunderbolt 3 to TB2 adapter. It worked just fine. Mac Pro 2013 (desktop). Samsung 34” curved Thunderbolt 3 monitor. Plugged into Thunderbolt port on monitor. Sound works also

If you mean the CJ79, then I think so. Thunderbolt 2 supports DisplayPort 1.2. Thunderbolt 3 supports two DisplayPort signals but I think only one is used for 3440x1440@100Hz (30bit color) = 14.9 Gbps so Thunderbolt 2 should be sufficient and there should be remaining bandwidth available for the USB 2.0 ports. Only the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter allows connecting Thunderbolt 3 devices to Thunderbolt 2 computers so this is the adapter you need.

Will this connect an older Thunderbolt 27" display to the new 16" MacBook Pro?
