    Hi All, Below are the specs I am comparing (taken from Apple's site today).

    I am comparing the HDMI res/freq support for the below two models. I currently use my MacBook Pro 13" to watch movies on my 1080p TV via HDMI. I have a new MacBook on order today and it does not list HDMI support, but you can obviously buy the dongle with HDMI. Seems to me that 3840-by-2160 of both machines match, so I am assuming that 1080p/60Hz is matched also.

    Question: Does anyone know for a fact if 1080p will display at 60Hz HDMI out? Thanks

    MacBook Pro 13" (currently own)

    HDMI video output

    • Support for 1080p resolution at up to 60Hz
    • Support for 3840-by-2160 resolution at 30Hz
    • Support for 4096-by-2160 resolution at 24Hz
    MacBook, Early 2016 (currently on order)

    Dual display and video mirroring: simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 3840 by 2160 pixels at 30Hz on an external display, both at millions of colors​

    I have my 2015 rMB plugged in to my TV right now, and it is running at 1080p, 60Hz. And there's no reason for the 2016 not to. :)
