    I need a 60hz external monitor for my early 2015 MBP 13 inch, I recently purchase a monitor But I learned it could only do UHD at 30Hz.

    Max resolution x max Hz

    - You learned wrong. It's officially supported for 60Hz.

    4k 28" Asus @ $540.00 is a pretty good deal.


    This is a list of things to help get 60 Hz with the 2015 rMBP 13".

    1.) To get 60 Hz you must be running a DisplayPort 1.2 Male to Mini DisplayPort Male Cable.

    2.) HDMI will work but will only run at 30 Hz. It will feel like the Macbook Pro is dropping frames but the 4K screen should still look beautiful.

    3.) When connecting to the monitor (and you have the Macbook Pro lid open) you get 2 choices under display options. Pick optimize for your 4K monitor and not the internal retina display. Then choose scaled and select "Looks like 1920x1080". Close the lid on the Macbook. This setting looks very nice on mine.

    4.) Macbook Pro must be plugged in.

    5.) Double check that your monitor is running 60 Hz. by looking in your 4K monitor's On Screen Menu.

    6.) Make sure Display Port option is changed from 1.1 to 1.2 on the monitor itself.

    7.) Even if everything works as it should there still may be some issues that are annoying.
