There’s been a lot said about the new M2 chip announced at WWDC 2022 recently. We covered the technical aspects of this second generation of Apple silicon for Macs extensively. Like other Mac fans, we’re thrilled with how much it will improve performance and especially power efficiency in the new 13-inch MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air.
While it improves upon the M1 in so many ways, we’ve discovered the old saying, “the more things change, the more they stay the same”, applies to the M2.
M2 MacBooks Still Only Support One External Display
Digging deeper into the new M2 MacBooks details provided by Apple, we discovered these machines will only support one external display with up to 6K resolution at 60Hz.
If you’re a history buff, you’ll recall that was the same frustrating external display limitation faced by owners of the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro released in 2020 with the basic M1 processor.
History is on the side of those wanting to buy these new M2 models. Just like with the M1 models, we know most Mac users love using multiscreen setups. The solution for M1 owners and now future M2 owners is the same.
The HDMI Adapter You’re Looking For
The OWC USB-C Dual HDMI 4K Adapter is the DisplayLink powered solution for expanding your M1 and M2 machine’s digital window for easier video editing, seeing more of your workflow simultaneously, or even creating eye-catching digital signage. But wait…there’s more! This compact, bus-powered adapter features a USB-C power pass-thru port so you can charge/power your laptop. Being the leading dock innovator for Macs, we know you love having ports freed up on your machine.
Don’t just take our word for how awesome this dual display (or more if you use two of these babies!) adapter. Here’s just one of several five-star customer reviews:
In true OWC fashion, we’ll show you how this nifty, pixel multiplying adapter works with the M2 MacBooks as soon as we get our hands on one.
