So far we can assume a few things:
1. It pretty much has to run at 4K 120 Hz for a price of $5000. If it's a 4K at 60 Hz display, it's value drops incredibly and the only ones who would buy it are for professional applications.
2. We can assume since it has a Thunderport 3 connection, it will not have dual Displayport 1.2 input that would allow 120 Hz at 4K from a modern "external" GPU.
3. We can assume since it has a Thunderport 3 connection, it won't have a single Displayport 1.3 input that would allow 120 Hz at 4K from a future "external" GPU.
4. Basically, the only source devices that are out now or are known to be coming out in 2016 that use Thunderbolt 3 are Laptops. I highly doubt the 2016 new release "external" GPU's from AMD and NVIDIA will have Thunderbolt 3 outputs.
5. If the Display is Thunderbolt 3 only input, current high end GPU's like Fury's and Titan-X's would have zero way to connect to the display.
My new Dell XPS 15 has a Thunderbolt 3 output, but driving a 4K Display at 120 Hz off of a laptop would be quite pointless outside of office/professional applications. You simply wouldn't have enough GPU power to do anything more strenuous such as heavy 3D rendering or games.
The only even remotely viable option I could find would be an external "Thunderbolt 3 Chassis":
Supposedly you connect the chassis to your PC via a thunderbolt 3 cable plugged into a PCI-E card. In the chassis, you plug in your GPU, such as a Titan-X. Then you plug your Chassis into the monitor via Thunderbolt 3. I still don't know how the GPU output would get routed back down through PCI-E to the Thunderbolt Chassis and out Thunderbolt 3 to the display. Not to mention this also may be a "laptop" only route.
Those wild and impractical designs rarely come to fruition. I have a feeling this may be a "Laptop" connection only display.
