Yes, the MultiSync PA Series models ship with a cable that can plug into a Thunderbolt port on your Mac and into the DisplayPort port on the monitor. This is the best connection for this configuration.
The MultiSync PA series use a dedicated color processor (SpectraView Engine) that can perform full 3D color gamut transforms to a high color bit-depth internally in the display. This coupled with the individual unit factory measurement and internal stabilization means that very accurate color gamut transforms can be done with no loss in image quality. Compared to many standard color gamut displays, these models are actually capable of proving a more accurate sRGB because they are able to cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut. Many standard color gamut displays do not actually cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut.
