Yes, the Magma is a ThunderBolt box and that Mac Mini has TB. Just that I think the Magma has older TB connector so you will need an adapter or a TB2/TB3 cable

Yeah I know they both have tb And the newer Magma v3 has tb3, so no issue there.I just wanted to know if it’s gonna run without any issues. There have been a number of incompatibility issues with these things.

Back in the day there were a lot of issues, but in this case you shouldn't worry too much. TB is just extending PCIe outside the computer chassis

Well i hope not either. Although avid does say that thunderbolt 3 chassis are not supported at this time. Many do use them though. I don’t know. I’ll just have to try it out. I can swap the tb3 card in the magma for a tb2 card. That should work and are supported by avid.
