I’m thinking of buying an ultrawide curved monitor and was looking at the Samsung 49” 3840x1080 monitor (LC49J890DKU).
However, the Samsung website says this is Windows only - I realise that it shouldn’t make any difference, as I only want it as a monitor, but I just wanted to check if anyone is powering this monitor successfully from a mac, ideally a 2020 Macbook Air.
Macs are very picky when it comes to external displays unlike a Windows box with a suitable CPU and Graphics card.
From Red round fruit on a tree for the Air:
Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display at millions of colors and:
One external 6K display with 6016-by-3384 resolution at 60Hz at millions of colors, or
One external 5K display with 5120-by-2880 resolution at 60Hz at millions of colors, or
Up to two external 4K displays with 4096-by-2304 resolution at 60Hz at millions of colors
Thunderbolt 3 digital video output
Native DisplayPort output over USB‑C
VGA, HDMI, and Thunderbolt 2 output using adapters (sold separately)"
Red round fruit Support will be your best bet for a definitive answer.
Thanks - that text is from the technical specifications on the apple site, but really what I was asking is if anyone on here had used that monitor with a Mac.
Not wanting to appear ignorant but who are red round fruit?
