Can a Minidisplayport to HDMI output 4K from my 2015 Air ? I plugged it in but the highest is 1080p?

    I'm probably wrong, but I'm pretty sure the MacBooks only have hdmi that currently supports 1080p only, but a miniDP to DP should be able to do 4k or at least a high res in general

    You bought an adapter that connects to the mini display port and ends in an HDMI port and you need to connect an HDMI cable to it? You need to make sure the adapter and the cable are both either HDMI 2.0, 2.0a or 2.1 standard for 4K at 60 Hz. Older cables and adapters only went up to 1900 x1200.

    You have to have compatible devices all along the signal chain. What MiniDisplayport adapter did you get, what hdmi cable, and what is the display you are connecting it to?
