    I plan on hooking up my MacBook Pro to a 4k screen. With the 15" not being upgraded to broadwell, how does the new 6100 in the 13" compare with the older integrated graphics in the 15"? I saw some people are having lag issues. Is this an isolated problem? Are the integrated graphics good enough to run a 4k desktop + laptop as secondary monitor?

    The Iris Pro 5200 (Haswell) is still way better than the Iris 6100 (Broadwell).

    Lol that's a video comparing the 5100 and 6100.

    6100 can do 4k. Apple says so right on their marketing materials.

    Those are the 13" Pros. The 15" has Iris Pro, which is better than the 13" 6100.

    The Iris Pro 5200:

    The HD 6100:

    While it isn't 5 million times better... the Iris Pro still comes out on top. :)

    This video also contains incorrect information. The 2015 15" models do not have Broadwell CPUs. They have the same Haswell CPUs as last year and thus, you're still getting the Iris Pro 5200.
