    Well the title about says it - I'm looking into buying one of the new 34 incl monitors from LG or Dell (around 1000 $/€). They should be thunderbolt2 equipped, but how do I drive a screen at that resolution (3440x1440) without a Mac Pro?
    I currently have the 2011 mac mini which features the amd Radeon 6630m gpu, but the highest supported resolution seems to be 2560x1600, at least on paper, which I use for my current Dell 30" display. And newer Minis/mbp's doesn't go much higher.

    Perhaps. But the tense of the question was present.....not at some potential Apple release in the future. Indeed it might haooen. But like all Apple releases (i.e. Aperture 4, ATD II)....when?

    Well, it can do it in the present. With Windows.
