    Question - does anyone know if it's possible to run a DisplayPortdisplay off each of the two Thunderbolt ports? Or just one display off TB port and one off HDMI port?

    At work I have two 24" HP monitors, each connected to a single PC via DVI cables. The PC does not have DP/mDP ports, but the monitors have DP ports (and VGA) in addition to single DVI ports.

    I'd like to connect the monitors to both the PC and a 2014 Mac mini, but I'd need to use DP (via an mDP-to-DP cable) on the Mac.

    So, does each Thunderbolt port on the new mini support a DisplayPort (non-Thunderbolt) display?

    The specs are 2 displays total, across all 3 ports.

    So 1 display on each thunderbolt port, or 1 on TB, one on HDMI, or assumedly 2 TB displays daisychained off 1 TB port
