    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.
