    It says:

    "Dual-Cable Displays
    Some displays with resolutions higher than 4K require two DisplayPort cables to connect the display at full resolution:
    The Dell UP2715K 27-inch 5K display is supported by iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014) and later"

    So I need to connect 2 Thunderbolt cables between the iMac and the Dell Screen? Any specific Thunderbolt cable?

    Cables that match your iMac, if Thunderbolt 3, use TB 3 cables.

    Not thunderbolt cables, 2 mini display port cables, they are far cheaper than thunderbolt ones.

    Yes, but I think a secondary 4K monitor is a significant price and tech savings. But that 5K Dell monitor is supported by the iMac using both display ports to drive it. The Apple supported LG monitors do NOT work with the 2014 or 2015 5K iMacs surprisingly.
