New MacBook Pro debut
In 2016, Apple removed almost all the ports from its MacBook Pro, leaving only the USB-C Thunderbolt port and headphone jack. As for the announcement of the next-generation MacBook Pro at last night’s event, Apple told viewers that having multiple I / O ports will be easier to use, so they brought HDMI and SD Card slots. That stem is back.
This time around, those who buy the next-generation MacBook Pro will get an HDMI port, but one of the things that makes this pod almost special is that it’s not the latest version, as Apple has an HDMI port. 2.0 only, not the latest 2.1. It should be noted that the HDMI 2.0 port can support the connection with a 4K display only and stuck at Refresh Rate 60Hz itself.
While HDMI 2.1 can support connection to another 4K display as well, but it can also support the Refresh Rate 120Hz. That’s why missing out on HDMI 2.1 is a bit unfortunate.
In addition to HDMI, the next-generation MacBook Pro also comes with up to three USB-C Thunderbolt 4 ports, all of which support connection to external monitors. Through this slot for M1 Pro MacBook Pro, it can support connection with External Display 6K display and Refresh Rate 60Hz up to 2 at the same time, while the M1 Max MacBook Pro model, it can support up to 4 monitors at a time. Only 3 of them can support up to 6K 60Hz, while the other one only supports 4K 60Hz monitors.
