    LOL who knew.

    If you need you can also decrease it to 480p and it will be even smoother!!!

    If I wanted a screen like that, I would save money and purchase Macbook Air :)

    There's a better trick.
    Go to System Preferences - Display - Color - and select an sRGB color profile.
    It will boost the UI performance and give punchier colors.

    I interpreted the question more as how switching your color profile boosts performance. I had never heard that before but tbh I'm not really familiar with how color profiles are handled by MacOS on the backend.
