Hi all,

I am looking for a 4k or 5k IPS monitor for graphic work, color needs to be accurate. what are the choices in the market.

is Dell UP2715K fully support 5k on cmp? it seems to be a nice monitor.

Thanks,
Wing

Hi wing, I'm interested in the same. I've seen some nice LG 45 displays, but not sure my cMP 2009 4,1 > 5,1 with a (coming) MSI Radeon 560 will support them.

It would be useful if you state what GPU you have!

Hey Mike, I have EVGA SC2 GTX 1080 TI. I am worry getting any 4k or 5k monitor due to lag of support in USB C and thunderbolt.

The 2715k isn't available in a lot of markets, and has never really been a turnkey reliable monitor from reports. Have a look at Benq's SW270 if 4k is acceptable.

got it... for me as well, but the issue is I work with tons of apps and windows open, and it helps in that respect. However, as you point out, its all very small, so its a lot of zooming in :)
It would be nice if there was a way to assign a screen resolution to particular apps so for example Ps could be native but browsers/finder/terminal are scaled.

that'd be awesome! I wonder if it is possible...
I thought that if you told Apple OSX that it was a "retina" monitor that the UI would be doubled in size - but that "retina-aware" apps would use native resolution for video/image windows.

Did I get that wrong?

Hm, true. Double-resolution images.

I think SwitchResX may have something to do with application specific settings. Have a look in that direction?

I just wish the interface/GUI was able to be larger on my Samsung 28" 4K (3840x2160 @64Hz). How come Apple hasn't come up with a solution for my resolution devolution? Feel free to add some rap to this.
