I'm wondering if the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar that was announced on October 27, 2016 can drive 4 external monitors? It says it has 4 Thunderbolt 3 ports, but can the graphics card handle 4 monitors?
The 2016 15" MacBook Pro will support up to four external displays.
You can have either of the following two options:
- Up to two 5K displays
- Up to four 4K displays
Specifically per the tech specs of the 2016 MacBook Pro:
Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display at millions of colors and:
Up to two displays with 5120-by-2880 resolution at 60Hz at over a billion colors Up to four displays with 4096-by-2304 resolution at 60Hz at over a billion colors Thunderbolt 3 digital video output
Native DisplayPort output over USB‑C VGA, HDMI, and Thunderbolt 2 output supported using adapters (sold separately)
The 13" model will support up to 2 external displays either
- One 5K display
- Up to two 4K displays
