    Can the 13-inch 2016 MacBook Pro with TouchBar connect to multiple displays and what is the limitation?

    For example, I would like to use a LG 5K + a 2560x1440 HDMI display connected using the Multiport adapter, will this work or is it only compatible with a single LG 5k display?

    So I presume it would only work with one 5k display and not the 2560x1440 as well, if running at native resolutions.

    Scaling actually uses more GPU performance and I/O bandwidth so it’s a straight no for a 5k with another screen.

    Didn't know that, thanks - there's the answer then.
