Display Connections for HDMI/DisplayPort Displays on 2019 Mac Pro or Other Macs

Jack Z writes:

I assume you are using the latest Mac Pro and I’d be grateful if you could advise if an older BenQ display with the following ports:

HDMI 1.4
DisplayPort 1.2
DVI
D-SUB

...can be connected to the current Mac Pro. I couldn’t find the answer in the spec. And Apple support people were clueless.

MPG: the 2019 Mac Pro has no DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort connectors, and no HDMI port either. Certain of the video card upgrade options offer an HDMI port, but HDMI is less good than DisplayPort for display calibration (I can’t recall the details as I write this).

The best solution so as to not lose a Thunderbolt port is the 14-port OWC Thunderbolt 3 Dock which has a Mini DisplayPort port along with its USB ports. Connect the display to the Dock with a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable. The new OWC Thunderbolt Dock is slick, but it lacks the Mini DisplayPort.

Some storage solutions offer an HDMI port. But connecting a display to a storage device is not my preference since I might want to turn the storage device off at times.

For an HDMI with some USB ports, the travel dock is slick. The dual DisplayPort adapter is good, but it dead-ends the Thunderbolt daisy chain (and I could not get it to work on the OWC Thunderbolt Hub, only direct-connect).
