    Does anyone have experience with 4k displays?

    I have the very first gen retina macbook pro (15", early 2012).
    I'm thinking about buying a 4k display.

    This is my model:

    Looks like the DP in my model is too old (Thunderbolt 1). Did anyone have any luck with running a 4k display @ 60fps on this rmbp model?

    Won't work... Need late 2013 15" for 4k 60hz.

    GVA, KUL, MEL (current), ZQN
    TB1 itself does not have sufficient bandwidth to drive 4K @ 60Hz.
