I plan to run a MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports) with two external UHD screens 3840 x 2160 at 60Hz using a dock.
My desired setting is:
Screen: LG 27UL850-W-4K https://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-27UL850-W-4k-uhd-led-monitor Dock: OWC thunderbolt 3 dock (https://eshop.macsales.com/shop/docks/owc-thunderbolt-3-dock).
According to Apple, this MacBook suppors two external Monitors up to 4K (https://support.apple.com/kb/SP754?locale=en_US)
Up to two displays with 3840-by-2160 resolution at 60Hz at over a billion colors
I found some posts reporting problems with dual external monitor settings with
- the same screen https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250066564
- other screens Dual monitor flickering: the secondary monitor does the flicker
- Should this setting run stable office work (Word, Excel) and video?
- Which cable and port do I have to use to connect the thunderbolt 3 dock with the monitors? Dual External Monitors on a (late) 2017 MacBook Pro mentioned:
Monitor A: Connected to mini-DisplayPort port Monitor B: Connected to daisy-chain Thunderbolt 3 port
I am not sure what is meaned with B. Could I also connect each screen with one of the TB3 of the dock? If yes, would a TB3 -> HDMI or TB3 -> DP cable lead to a better result?
This question is similar to Dual 4K monitors with 2017 Macbook Pro base model, however more specific.
