    Will the new MBP allow me to attach 3 x 30" monitors all at their max res of 2560 x 1600? The monitors are dell u3014's.

    I plan on buying the 15" model with the up specced GPU.

    Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Thanks

    Some information
    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207256
    and
    https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206587 (needs a bit of updating)

    This page says you can connect 2 x 5K to it; https://www.apple.com/macbook-pro/
    And on this page: https://www.apple.com/thunderbolt/ it says on thunderbolt 3 you can connect 1x 5k or 2x 4k..
    so i guess 4x 4k on 2 thunderbolt 3 ports, or 2x 5k on 2 thunberbolt 3 ports.

    If 4 monitors is really possible, real life will have to prove that.
    That said, if 5k is possible, then your 30" should be fine, certainly 2 of them.

    The above pages might help you determine what you can connect and if you need an adapter.


    [edit]
    I just read on a site that the 13" pro you can connect 1x 5k, or 2x 4k
    And on the 15" pro you can connect 2x 5k, or 4x 4k.

    This implies that 3x 30" shouldn't be an issue.
