Hello. I want to buy (www.ebay.com or aliexpress.com) a cable Thunderbolt 3 <-> DP or miniDP. Please recommend me (there are sold cables usb-c (compatible thunderbolt), I can't understand - It is the same?). Thank you

I have a computer Intel NUC NUC8i3BEH (with Thunderbolt 3) and a monitor BENQ PD3200Q (with Displayport and miniDisplayport).

For best results, you want to purchase a USB-C to DP adaptor that is Thunderbolt 3 compatible​.

Those sound like possibilities, but I can't say for sure. I have never used cables; I have always used adapters.

This is the DP version I use to get 4K@60Hz on my DP monitor: https://www.amazon.com/CAC-1507-DisplayPort-Adapter-Chromebook-Thunderbolt/dp/B018AX3HJO.

This is the HDMI version I use to get 4K@60Hz on my 40" TV: https://www.amazon.com/CAC-1504-Chromebook-Thunderbolt-Supports-3840x2160/dp/B016QO8186.

 

These are Amazon shortcuts; I am not a fan of the broken/used crap you get through eBay and I don't trust and most definitely won't use ALI at all.
