Does Early 2015 MacBook Pro output 4K 3840 via Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort? I seem to get only HD max option on YouTube videos.

I have a Samsung U32J590U 31.5" 4K UHD monitor. If not, do I have to get a real Thunderbolt cable or is HDMI-to-HDMI the answer?


Display Support:

Supports an HDMI-compatible device, including 4K, while using one Thunderbolt display or support for two Thunderbolt displays

External Resolution:


  • 3840 by 2160 pixels at 30Hz

  • 4096 by 2160 pixels at 24Hz


  • 3840 by 2160 pixels at 60Hz

  • 5120 by 2880 pixels at 60Hz (with Radeon R9 M370X)
