Good news — if you ever want to use an 8K display with your Mac, the newly updated lineup will do you good.
The 2023 Mac mini and MacBook Pro both support brutal 8K output via HDMI
The newly announced M2 and M2 Pro Mac mini along with the M2 Pro laptops and M2 Max MacBook Pro are full of amazing surprises. From fast Wi-Fi 6E connectivity to a starting price of $599 for the Mac mini, we’ve got a lot of great stuff to go for it.
We now learn that the new Mac computers are capable of working with an external 8K display via HDMI. If you own something that can display that many pixels, you’ll love this feature. But it gets better – this feature works out of the box on every single model. You don’t have to get a special upgrade for this to work – your GPU cores are more than enough for this.
Aside from their ridiculously good 8K output capabilities, the Mac mini and MacBook Pro work just fine with a 4K display with up to 240Hz refresh rate. If you thought ProMotion wasn’t good enough on the MacBook Pro’s built-in display, this one might blow your mind.
Connecting displays via Thunderbolt 4 is still an obvious option. Funny enough, this is how you connect one of Apple’s own displays – either the Studio Display or the Pro Display XDR.
Where there’s good news, there’s somewhat bad news, too — you can’t connect multiple 8K displays at the same time.
