    Does anyone know if the new Mac Mini will be capable of running 4K resolution on an Samsung 65" curved TV? If so, I´m all for it. :)

    It should. If your TV has a display port 1.2 input, you should be able to drive it at 60Hz. If it's over HDMI, you'll probably be limited to 30Hz.

    From what has been demonstrated with the 13" rMBP, and considering the processors in the new Mini are the same, it will NOT support 4k60Hz.

    3840 x 2160 30Hz or 4096 x 2160 24Hz

    3440x1440 @ 60?

    I'm eyeing one of those of 34" ultra wide curved monitors.

    minidisplay port to HDMI 2.0 as far as I know doesn't exist yet?

    I guess it will be available one day, but, can any of 2014 mac mini models output 4k @60Hz?

    That was my idea also to use it on 4K TV, and I waited so long, I was expecting even hdmi 2.0 on it, but.. :(

    Not unless the Displayport version on the new mini is 1.3 (which only came out last month). Displayport 1.2 only supports HDMI 1.4 in dual mode so no 4K@60Hz support...

    No, DP 1.2 can run single stream 3840x2160 @60Hz, last year nvidia gpu I have does it.

    And also intel iris GPU can, but depends on CPU, this is from intel support:

    The mini 2011 and 2012 support 4k. No reason why the 2014 wouldn't. 60Hz is not needed for tv.

    McMini(2014) Core-i7: Two TB2, Two(3840x1440) Monitors?

    The MacMini(2014) with full spec Core-i7(3Mz) & Iris Graphics - has two Thunderbolt-2 output ports, presumably on a single bus. Can it run two of the (3840x1440) LG-34UC87 TB2 monitors? Or just the one? and would that be at 60Hz?
