btw - if you own e.g. a Mac Mini and you think of using the built in HDMI and the Thunderbolt port forget about that too because the HDMI on the Mini is limited to 1920x1080P60 (at least mine was) and the HD4000 Intel graphics should also have problems with UHD @ 60 Hz - even the new rMBP don't support that

the only two ways to get UHD @ 60 Hz now on MAC are either buy a Mac PRO or a dedicated compatible GPU that is capable of doing that - that said - it might work attaching such a GPU in a TB casing if you happen to own a MAC without internal PCIe slots

Thanks! very good information! I did not know Mac does not support 2x HDMI output, any particular reason why it can't? can I use one mDP (or thunderbolt) to HDMI adapter and another one from on board HDMI port so I can have 2x HDMIs outputs to the 4K monitor @ 60Hz....

Again, thanks!
