    My question is if you run a 4K monitor on a 2013 Mac Pro do you get super sampling options?

    For example, can you run a scaled 5120X2880 desktop on your 4k display (similar to how this is handled on current retina Macs) or does it simply scale up a 2560X1440 and look blurry.

    Thanks,

    MM

    Guys, what looks worse on 4K display? 1080p resolution in application, or higher DPI mode like 2560x1440p scaled from 5120x2880?

    I use an app called "Display Menu"

    On my 5K it offers blurry 2560x1440 as well as HiDP that looks great. Offers many more res options then Apple does.
