    Hello everyone,

    Does anyone experience lag with mission control and scrolling running 2x 4k monitors in 2560x1440 scaled mode with a 5,1?

    If so what GPU do you have? (or 6,1?)

    I'm running a 5,1 with a GTX980 and I'm experiencing lag with multiple windows open and then trying to activate mission control.

    I have not. Thanks for the suggestion. That would mess up my workflow quite a bit though.

    can I ask a related question - how does 4k scaled to 2560x1440 look? For 27" screens this is probably the closest anyone is going to get to retina now that Dell has killed their 5k screen and is moving to 4k/8k only, and LG, I suspect, are only going to make their 5k screen in thunderbolt.

    It looks pretty good. If you have great eyesight, you can tell it's not as good as scaled 1920x1080. Otherwise, much better than native 2560x1440 with my eyes. Lag though.
