Can I use a thunderbolt 2 to thunderbolt 3 adapter to use this?

I have an early 13 MBP 15" with NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1 GB Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB, 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7, and 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3.
All that to say, I have thunderbolt 2 ports and I need a dock. I know there are good thunderbolt 2 docks but I plan on upgrading the laptop by the end of the year and would love it if I could buy a thunderbolt 3 dock and use a dongle in the meantime. Im sure at a minimum, it wouldn't be as powerful, but If I could get by with that for now, I would like to at least know.
Thanks for your time,
-Steven

  • Yes. You can successfully use this with an adapter to an old Mac for example and works fine. Won't be as fast with data transfer if that's an issue.
