I have an older Mac mini (late 2012 model) where the Mini DisplayPort is still based on the old 1.1a DisplayPort specification (= maximum resolution is [email protected]; it can’t do 4K).
I would like to connect this computer to a 1440p-display via HDMI. The Mac mini has an integrated HDMI connector, but it maxes out at 1080p; if you want a higher resolution, you have to use the Mini DisplayPort connector. However, would the CAC-1170 adapter work with the Thunderbolt/Mini DisplayPort to provide a 2560×[email protected] HDMI signal? Or does the adapter strictly require a 1.2 Mini DisplayPort connector?
