So the new MacPros release in December.. they have no slots. Just thunderbolt. Are external thunderbolt versions of the Decklink coming out..Red Rockets potentially as well? Or would we need a PCI Expansion box?

Decklink for thunderbolt is called the ultrastudio and is already out. There is also the mini-monitor which works with Resolve.

RedRockets work inside of a thunderbolt to PCi enclosure. But you're limited by the thunderbolt speed. For RedRocket legacy it's not such an issue, but the RedRocket-X will be limited by this.

[Juan Salvo] "RedRockets work inside of a thunderbolt to PCi enclosure. But you're limited by the thunderbolt speed. For RedRocket legacy it's not such an issue, but the RedRocket-X will be limited by this."

If Red offers the option to feed a 4K signal back to the host system with production-quality down scaling then bandwidth issues on Thunderbolt 2 would only come into play if you needed to actually work at 6K in real time, which will be pretty rare (since you can't actually monitor it, etc.). It's not clear if they'll do this, however.
