I have a mid-2012 13" Macbook Air with Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536 MB
My monitor died recently so I'm in the market for a new one, and I would like to know the maximum supported resolution for external displays @ 60hz refresh rate on this model?
The Apple info page here https://support.apple.com/kb/sp670?locale=en_GB ...states that max res is 2560x1600 but it doesn't state the refresh rate.
I don't want to go for that if only 30hz is supported.
The canonical question for Macbook display resolution answers is:
MacBook Pro - how many displays, what resolution/frequency?
This provides a link to EveryMac website which has more detailed specs info than provided by Apple.
However when I lookup my MBA on EveryMac I only find the following info:
2nd Display Support: "Dual/Mirroring*
2nd Max. Resolution: 2560x1600 (x2)
Details: *Although Apple makes no mention of it, third-parties have discovered that this model can simultaneously support two external displays up to 2560x1600 "daisy chained" via Thunderbolt."
As with the official Apple specs, this does not give the refresh rate supported at 2560x1600.
Commenters have suggested that 2560x1600 is only supported @ 30hz... in which case my question still stands: what is the max resolution supported @ 60hz (for my specific model of Macbook)?
