Hi Randall,

Thanks for posting!

To your question, yes, you can use two of our Thunderbolt 3 Dual Display HDMI adapters (TBT3-HDMI2X-83 -> https://plugable.com/products/tbt3-hd…) to add four external displays to your MacBook Pro 15" model. One important note, they must be connected to Thunderbolt 3 ports on the opposite of the laptop in order for this to work.

We have not tested running Windows 10 in a virtualized environment on the Mac, so we cannot guarantee that the displays will be recognized by an operating system running within a virtual machine (I would presume it would NOT work).

That said, if you are running Windows 10 via a Bootcamp installation on the physical laptop hardware the displays will work.

Thank you,

Bob
