Dell u2713H monitor supports Daisy Chaining. as one of the first monitors I've seen that uses DP 1.2 protocol. In essence, I'm asking if thunderbolt supports / enables / works with DP chaining, but the practical question is more obvious.

Can I connect 3 of those monitors to my 2011 Intel HD Mac Mini via it's one Thunderbolt port?

  • I thought that thunderbolt supports only data chains, not display ones... – Uko Feb 1 '13 at 13:36
  • From wikipedia: Thunderbolt combines PCI Express (PCIe) and DisplayPort (DP) into one serial signal. DP 1.2 supports monitor Daisy Chaining. But maybe i am overlooking something? –  ShadowHero Feb 1 '13 at 13:42
  • yep, found some info on chaining macrumors.com/2011/09/16/… – Uko Feb 1 '13 at 13:46
  • possible duplicate of Thunderbolt -> Triple Monitor Mac Mini? – mmmmmm Feb 1 '13 at 13:50
  • I am 100% this is NOT possible with any "normal" monitor. This is not possible with Thunderbolt Display also. My Mac Mini can only support 2 displays max and only one of them can have 2560x1440 resolution. But Dell u2713h is one of the first monitors with DP 1.2 and Daisy Chaining. @Mark: not duplicate because DP 1.2 is something pretty new on monitors. –  ShadowHero Feb 1 '13 at 14:01
