    Bootcamp is just a way of switching to a different OS, so I'm guessing you meant does Windows 10 support 5K? That I don't know the answer to, but I sure someone else will.

    Last I heard and can see on the internet is a max resolution of 3840x2160

    Most of these came from people running Windows 8.1.

    Maybe you can test it for us using Windows 10? :D

    There are 5k drivers for Win10 but not for Win 7. I don't know about the flavours of Win8 as I don't own it.

    In Windows 10 it does.
    I'm not sure about other versions.

    Nice one, planning to get one of these towards the end of the year when the next version possibly could be released.
    Good to hear since I use Bootcamp a lot!

    Don't forget the free upgrade to Windows 10 expires later this year - just an FYI

    I've got an external drive with Windows 10 to Go on it and Windows 10 on all my Macs thanks to all the product keys they give to students at university through Dreamspark for free :D

    Windows 10 keys seem to be very cheap on a site called Kinguin, if you ever need one, cheapest site I found so far.
