2020 MacBook Pro / Thunderbolt 2 dock

Hi everyone,

I just purchased a new MacBook Pro and I'm hoping someone can help me out with a connectivity and compatibility question.

I've been using a 2014 MacBook Pro along with an Elgato Thunderbolt 2 dock for ages now—the dock connects my 2014 MBP to speakers, an external (Dell) display and my external hard drive, so that I can use one cord to power my entire desktop setup.

I was hoping I might be able to keep using the dock with the 2020 MBP as well, but I'm wondering if it's simply obsolete now. Would a Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 adapter daisy-chained to the dock (which uses a Thunderbolt 2 cable from dock to computer) still work, or is that not possible?

I have a USB C to Mini Displayport cable that doesn't seem to work at all, and would rather not invest in a Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 adapter if it's incompatible. And I would really like to not have to invest another $300 in an upgraded dock...

Any help would be super appreciated!

or similar such requests as "is 2020 MacBook Pro compatible with Elgato Thunderbolt 2 dock".

BTW: Did you see this in case you might need it:
Download Thunderbolt Dock Utility for macOS 10.11 and later
https://www.elgato.com/en/dock/support

and this, but it appears the link is broken:
Thunderbolt™ 2 Dock can connect to a Thunderbolt™ 3 port using an adapter from Apple
https://help.elgato.com/hc/en-us/art...isplay-support

And maybe Corsair support can help as they took over the elgato stuff it seems.
