    Hi, I'm currently wondering if it's possible to have a 4k monitor on something like a Mac Pro and have it scale to 2560x1140 or if this can only be achieved with a 5k monitor. Thanks!

    I run my P2415Q at any number of weird resolutions up to 2160p, including 2560x1440.

    Oh nice, so your not limited by your screen size in order to use the desired HiDPI scale? I was not sure if you need to have EXACLY double your HiDPI scale.

    not sure if your request res is possible but switchresX does allow a number of custom screen sizes. Below is the resolutions which support HiDPI for my U28D590 4K display:

    these are the native options, so yes 2560x1440 is a hidpi option for the nMP with dell 4k monitor.
