I'm thinking about buying the new MacBook Pro with 4 USB-C ports.
I want to attach two screens, mouse and keyboard and ethernet to the MacBook Pro while using the fewest number of USB-C ports possible.
So what I need is an adaptor with:
- two DP or HDMI ports (or one DP port with daisy chaining support)
- two or more USB ports
- an ethernet port
Best case would be a hub to which all devices are connected with a single connection to the MacBook Pro, including power supply. Worst case if attaching the MacBook Pro to the devices would require me to use all four of USB-C ports.
Given the answers up to far, I can tell that:
- Daisy chaining might or might not work with the MacBook Pro (since it requires DP1.2 which is supported by the graphics chipset, but it's uncertain if it's supported by the MacBook Pro itself)
- I can attach the monitors with two cables as a last resort, leaving me with two ports for the remaining peripherals.
What I still don't know:
- Would daisy chaining work with a hub or does it require the first monitor to be directly attached to the MacBook Pro?
- Does some kind of hub exist supporting attachment of all listed devices with a single upstream connection to the MacBook Pro?
