[REPORT#2732]Macbook Air 11″ Mid-2013 w/ CSV-5200?

Post Content:

I need to connect two external DisplayPort-monitors to my 11″ MBA (Early 2014, A1465, i7-4650U, 8GB memory).

The CSV-5200 seems to be perfect, but I don’t know if it will work.

My Macbook Air has one Thunderbolt 1 port.
Thunderbolt 1 is compatible with DisplayPort 1.1a.
DisplayPort 1.1a is not capable of MST, for which DisplayPort 1.2 is necessary.
Thunderbolt 2 is based on DisplayPort 1.2.

But the Intel i7-4650U HD Graphics 5000 in my MBA should support DisplayPort 1.2 and MST!

Things are even more complicated. I’m running a Linux-based OS on my MBA (which seems to support MST better than OS X).

I found some evidence of people who got multi monitors working on a Thunderbolt 1 device (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4740489?start=43&tstart=0 vikbez got two monitors working in Windows with Mid-2012 MacBook Pro).

Maybe you could clear things up?
Thank you so much, this is causing headaches..
