Retina MacBook Pro Capable of Running Three Simultaneous External Displays

Retina MacBook Pro Capable of Running Three Simultaneous External Displays

The new Retina MacBook Pro apparently has one neat and powerful feature that Apple didn’t mention. According to a blog post at Other World Computing (via MacRumors), the device is capable of powering an impressive 4 displays at the same time (counting the built-in Retina display).

OWC:

Including the built-in Retina display, the new 2012 MacBook Pro 15″ can run four displays at their native resolution.

  1. Retina on laptop @ “best for Retina”
  2. iMac used as a display @ 2560 x 1440 via Thunderbolt
  3. iMac used as a display @ 2560 x 1440 via Thunderbolt/DisplayPort
  4. LG monitor @ 1920 x 1200  via HDMI

What’s especially impressive is that all 4 displays cab be showing video at the same time without any noticeable lag. Better still: If the new Retina MacBook Pro is capable of powering 4 displays, the 15-inch 2012 non-Retina MacBook Pro should be able to as well (at least the 2.6ghz model with 1GB graphics chip).

That’s a serious chunk of screen real estate! Now, if only I had two more Thunderbolt displays…
