When it comes to Thunderbolt (TB) docks for Macbooks, which is better? Dock with HDMI connectors or Docks with DisplayPort (DP) connectors? I read somewhere a long time ago that since Mac natively uses DisplayPort protocol internally over the Thunderbolt cables, it is better. For HDMI, the dock needs to cover DP to HDMI bits. Is that true? Is that still a valid statement?
As we try to push higher resolutions to external monitors 4K/60Hz or 5K, we push a lots of data for such resolutions. Hence, less translation might mean better display signal fidelity. As I scoured the internet, I realized that people dont seem to know the technical details around HDMI over TB vs DP over TB.
