New MacBook Pro HDMI Port Limited to 4K Display at 60Hz

The HDMI port on Apple's new MacBook Pro is limited to 4K at 60Hz, according to Apple's specifications.

HDMI digital video output
Support for one display with up to 4K resolution at 60Hz
DVI output using HDMI to DVI Adapter (sold separately)


This likely means the notebook has an HDMI 2.0 port rather than an HDMI 2.1 port which supports 4K at 120Hz. It's unclear why Apple decided to go with HDMI 2.0 instead of HDMI 2.1 but perhaps there are bus bandwidth limitations involved.

That’s not so bad. It’ll flourish with a few tweaks an engineer can do. I’ve seen it with soldered ram, and surely this is no exception especially with the help of OWC!

Lol RIP. Guess GPU core isn’t that hyped up to support HDMI 2.1
