can anyone confirm that if I were to use a 4K @ 60Hz, I need 2x HDMI ports to drive that kind of bandwidth or 1x display port 1.2?

I know for sure 1x dp port 1.2 can do that, but not sure about 2x HDMI ports.

I need 60Hz, not 30Hz.



forget about 2x HDMI on a MAC - simply because no MAC currently have 2 x HDMI.

From the OS X side that should be easy because you could combine a bigger array of screens but I am not aware that there is any UHD Display out that could use that kind of signals.

I would exclude dual-HDMI as a viable solution.

(I could eb wrong here)

DP 1.2 will definitely work and most current MACs have that and lot's of GPUs as well

you can have a look here

btw - in Europe you have to pay import taxes on HDMI ports - thart's also the reason why you'll find only a limited number of HDMI ports on monitors to allow a lower sales price
