Does the M1 Mac Mini support 2 4k monitors (extended)? If so, would it be over usb-c, displayport, etc.? Thank you.

Yes.

Simultaneously supports up to two displays: One display with up to 6K resolution at 60Hz connected via Thunderbolt and one display with up to 4K resolution at 60Hz connected via HDMI 2.0

You can get a monitor with USB-C connection or DisplayPort to USB-C cable, then another monitor with a HDMI connection.

Thanks for your quick reply. What would be the best way to hook up 2 4k monitors? Both via USB-C? Thanks again.

As @minik posted above, one monitor can be connected via USB-C and the other must connect via HDMI. You cannot connect two monitors with USB-C. Unfortunately, this is a basic limitation of the M1 Mini, the Intel Mini's are more versatile in this regard.

Is there any downside between connecting via usb-c and hdmi? Or it doesn't really matter...? Thanks.

Would this work for the USB-C port going to the monitor?
