Just wondering, does it work?

    Currently, there is no pc with thudnerbolt port, so it is not possible, (yet)

    Actually there are thunderbolt ports on some motherboards, I know Gigabyte have made at least one.


    The question is would it work?

    I don't know and until someone actually tests one out (by taking a PC with a Thunderbolt port to an Apple Store and trying to hook it up) I wouldn't think that anyone could answer the question.

    I HAD the same question about my beautiful new 27" TB Cinema Display.  I went to the Apple Store and they said their is no way to hook up the monitor to anything other than a Mac with thudnderbolt display. If something happens to your Mac--your out of luck, and you have a $1,000 door-stop.  Our home went 100% Apple last year, 2-iphones, 2-ipads, 27" TB Cinema Display, MBPro and an iMac. About $8,000 worth...over $10,000 when you add the Mac software purchased.  After 12 months, we are going back to PC's, GalaxyS-III phones and android tablets.


    I am MAD about Apple holding us hostage to their technology.....

    I can confirm thunderbolt display works on PC.  I'm running Windows 8 on a Asus P8Z77-V-Pro Thunderbolt mobo.


    HD facetime, USB and audio all work.    The only problem is daisy chaining 2 TB displays for a dual monitor setup didn't work.  Only 1 screen will work and the other wouldn't turn on. I assume it's a driver issue.  In the meantime, I'm running 1 TB display off the TB port and a cinema display off my graphics card.  Works great so far.

    What a bizarre rant. In any event, there is no "27 TB Cinema Display", there is a Cinema Display, which is Mini Display Port only (but can take input from Macs with Thunderbolt because that can double as a Mini Display Port), and a Thunderbolt Display, which is Thumderbolt only. Who cares about how you feel about Apple and products you're going to buy? This is a thread about whether a Thunderbolt Display will work on a PC, and NYC1 replied to that question with actual facts.

    Can you put your computer to sleep on windows while the thunderbolt is connected? With a macbook/bootcamp this is not possible, and is VERY inconvenient.
