Question: How many projectors can I connect to my MacBook Pro 2016?

I can't find the specs of exactly how many external screens/projectors I can connect to my MBP 2016 (15 inch, 4 USB-C/TB3 outputs).


I would like to connect 3 WXGA (1280x800px) projectors and run these as separate outputs, can I do that? 2 seems to work fine, but before I buy another VGA-adapter I like to know if there is any idea?


Thanks

MacBook

Caution: use of more than TWO "legacy" display adapters requires the use of ACTIVE adapters. (VGA adapters are always active adapters.)


Your MacBook Pro may get HOT with so many displays active. Be alert to that possible problem.
