Hello, Im creating a new build with Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C)

-Intel i7-6700K 4.0Ghz Box
-Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4

-Gigabyte Z170 Ultra Gaming (GA-Z170X-Ultra Gaming)
-Nvidia GTX 970
-Samsung 500GB SSD


this build is for Video live events (with windows and Mac Os)
It will be using with MATROX MXo2 and BLACKMAGIC Intensity and Mini.

The question is:
How the graphics works with the thunderbolt connections when i plug a Matrox or a Blackmagic?
the graphics comes from the GTX 970 or the integrated graphics?
We need the power of the GTX 970, and i want to know if are connected with it.

Thanks you so much!

Theoretically yes, just plug it in. But, not sure if there is a driver that must be installed at the OS level to make it work. If that is the case then it may not work in macOS.
