    Considering how there are always many different (answers/opinions) pertaining to the capabilities of these and other Apple Products, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO RUNNING MULTIPLE DISPLAYS (MONITORS), I myself cannot understand why Apple doesn't just automatically elaborate on ALL the possibilities of each product, right from the beginning for us all....? I mean, the second I saw this truly awesome accessory, after I stopped drooling over it, the 1st thing I thought of was this same question....because I myself, like the majority of us whom would be interested in the product at hand, possess multiple HD/UHD(4k), and/or 21:9 monitors already...Think about it, who wants this piece and wouldn't be eventually asking this same question !? This has been a major on-going issue concerning the "how many monitors etc" question for years.....please, either add the possibilities from the jump, or have a verified Apple engineer monitor the heck out of these Q threads and help you can sell more of them yourselves....Just a thought - thx.

  • The eGPU has one HDMI and two Thunderbolt 3 ports. You need to connect one Thunderbolt 3 port to the Mac, so I think you would only be able to connect two screens maximum, though I may be wrong.

  • You can connect two 4K displays to a Thunderbolt 3 port and a 4K display to the HDMI 2.0 port.

    Two displays connected to a Thunderbolt 3 port requires one of the following (simplest first):
    1) A Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort adapter.
    2) A Thunderbolt 3 device with two Thunderbolt 3 ports and a DisplayPort or HDMI 2.0 port. Connect a USB-C to DisplayPort or HDMI 2.0 adapter to a Thunderbolt 3 port.
    3) Two Thunderbolt 3 devices, each with a DisplayPort. One with a 2nd Thunderbolt 3 port to connect the second Thunderbolt 3 device.

    If this eGPU was supported in Windows (it is not; it is difficult to get it working in Windows) or if macOS supported MST (macOS does not support MST) then you could connect six 1920x1080 displays using two MST hubs connected to the Thunderbolt 3 port.

  • it support 4k monitors with HDMI and 5k or 4k thunderbolt monitors, and with a thunderbolt 2 to thunderbolt 3 adapter older Apple thunderbolt displays. Any monitor will work as long as you have the right adapter for it if required.

  • The eGPU only have 2 video output. 1 via USB-C aka thunderbolt 3 and 1 via HDMI
