Mac mini now supports 6K screens
Some users want to connect an external display to their Mac – or several of them. This means that you can keep track of some tasks and work faster. With the Mac mini, it is in the nature of things that a screen is required. Basically, the M1-Macs that have just been introduced are also compatible with additional displays – albeit with fewer screens at the same time than their respective Intel counterparts. With the Mac mini, only two instead of three monitors can be connected – after all, the current series also supports 6K resolution.
More external displays on Intel Macs
In notebooks, 6K was already possible without any problems – both the MacBook Air and the Pro model are also equipped with an Intel chip for 6K. Users who content themselves with 4K resolution could, however, use two corresponding displays at the same time – this is a thing of the past with the ARM Macs: Those who now opt for Apple’s current top models will get astonishing battery life and powerful hardware – but not the option to operate a second external panel with the MacBook Air or Pro. The following table gives you an overview of all options:
|M1 version||Intel version|
|Mac mini||1 × 6K and 1 × 4K or 2 × 4K||3 × 4K or 1 × 5K and 1 × 4K|
|MacBook Air||1 × up to 6K||2 × 4K or 1 × up to 6K|
|MacBook Pro||1 × up to 6K||2 × 4K or 1 × up to 6K|
