    I have seen that the Mac Mini will support 4K but only at 30Hz and not 60Hz, does anyone know if this monitor from Samsung is capable of running at 30Hz, I can't seem to find any details anywhere.

    The Samsung
    U32E850R or U28E850R

    "Connectivity is ample but not spectacular. There’s both a full-size and mini-DisplayPort along with two HDMI sockets, one of which is HDMI 1.4 and the other HDMI 2.0. That means you can get 60Hz 4K from one HDMI and both DisplayPorts, while the second HDMI is limited to 30Hz at 4K. It's also possible to manually change the DisplayPort mode between 1.1 and 1.2."

    So, yes, the display obviously supports 30Hz input as the HDMI 1.4 port will only do 30Hz @4k.

    (btw...that took about 30 seconds on google) ;)
