Overheat would appear to be your main hurdle. Two displays daisy-chained over Thunderbolt, leaving a third to run from HDMI has been achieved, but at a cost… From Everymac However, in more detailed evaluation, a helpful EveryMac.com reader reported: I have a "Mid-2012" Retina Display MacBook Pro with two 27" Thunderbolt Displays daisy chained in ...

The reason why the dual setup isn't working is that you are using MiniDP & HDMI when dual monitors via MiniDP and HDMI are not supported, as noted in the product guide. You will have to use a Thunderbolt-ready monitor with a Thunderbolt cable to allow both monitors to be driven from the dock. The reason for this is that your dock is being driven by one ...

Most likely, yes. The only caveat being that OS X 4k @ 60hz support has been buggy for all of Yosemite. You'll need a high quality Mini-displayport to Displayport cable. Look for DisplayPort 2.0.

Yes, it's true, and it's not related or limited to Macs, but more of a hardware limitation. It is my understanding that similar to how normal 29,99 DVI adapters only support 1920x1200 max, and you have to go to 99,99 dual-link DVI if you want higher resolution, the HDMI through these cheaper adapters is likewise limited to a single link, and thus you can't ...

stumbled across this question 5 months later, but here are my findings after my own googling as of april 2015: You cant run a 4k TV with only HDMI inputs at 60hz from any Mac. I recently purchased the exact TV you linked, the 40" samsung UHD. It only has HDMI inputs, and my rocketfish DP to HDMI adapter cable going from my mid-2014 rMBP with OSX 10.10.3 ...

Your machine will support up to 2560x1600 on an external monitor. However, using a converter thunderbolt to HDMI will output max of 1920x1080. If the monitor you are planning to connect to your laptop is HD(720p) or Full HD (1080p) then you are good to go and can use a converter thunderbolt to HDMI. If the monitor's resolution is higher than 1080p then you ...
