Connect to different Thunderbolt 3 busses
Your MacBook Pro has two busses for its four Thunderbolt 3 ports. Each pair of Thunderbolt 3 ports (on the left and right sides of your Mac) are different busses. Whenever possible, connect your displays to different busses to maximize performance. Don’t connect more than two displays to either bus. If you connect a 6K, 5K, or multi-cable 4K display, use a different bus for each of the displays.
- When you start up your MacBook Pro, the built-in display lights up. Other connected displays show an image after your Mac finishes starting up. If one or more displays don’t show an image after startup, learn what to do.
- Learn about adapters for the Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) ports on your MacBook Pro.
- Use external monitors with your Mac.
