Can someone confirm if this will work:

Thunderbolt 3 Port On MacBook Pro >> Mini DisplayPort to USB-C Cable >> 27" Thunderbolt Display

I know it wouldn't transfer data, as its not an actual Thunderbolt cable, but I just want to know if it will transmit video signal...?

I want to hook up my 27" Thunderbolt Display to a new MacBook Pro that I have ordered...trying to keep it as simple as possible without going for a big docking station and all that at the moment.

Will this cable work?
