    I have a macbook pro 2014 that's powering my 4k monitor, but it's sort of laggy.

    So, I'm eyeing this new iMac with 5k.

    I only want it, however, if it can support both the built in 5k monitor and an external 4k monitor (DP 1.2) without lag.

    Although "without lag" is subjective ;)

    Yes, this is possible

    The fact that Apple updated that page so quickly is freaking impressive. Damn this is a weird company.

    Wow Nice find!

    As with OP, I'm surprised they updated this page quickly.

    iMac driving 9k ! (5k + 4k screen) whew.. I have the 4k Dell, going to test this to see if it's smooth. I won't be editing 4k video or anything like that. I get my iMac on Friday, I'll let you folks know how the performance is.

    A 5K monitor and a 4K monitor does not equate to 9K resolution, but I get what you mean. :)
