Hello,

I'm looking to run 6 monitors for my:

2018 mac mini

3.2 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7

64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4

Catalina 10.15.6

 

I'm looking to purchase:

ASRock Radeon RX 5700 XT DirectX 12 RX 5700 XT TAICHI X 8G OC+ 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

as it has 6 video outputs.

using the Razer Core X

 

Has anyone tried this setup for 6 monitors? Will this work? Do you have a better option for running 6 monitors. This is for work, not gaming. My screens are 1920x1080

 

Thanks so much for any help.

@mclovin, I don't see why it wouldn't work in powering 6x monitors. The product website for the ASRock RX 5700 XT Taichi shows a photo of this very feature. I think this is your best option in macOS.

That should work fine. If you want 6 DisplayPort 1.4, then you would have to go with a workstation card such as the W5700.

This build worked well for me. I still need to connect monitor directly to Mac mini on startup. Occasionally I have challenges waking up the mini from sleep. But graphics card is great for 6 displays.
