    Im pretty sure only the mac pro and late 2013 15" mbp will do that.

    im surprised its even smooth pushing 4k with an hd3000 gpu

    You can only do retina scaling on 4K with late-2013 rMBPs (with TB2) or the new Mac Pro.

    For 60 Hz support, only the 15" and Mac Pros are supported. The 13" rMBP doesn't support 60 Hz.

    I have a 2013 rMBP 13 inch and am not getting any retina scaling above 1080P with a 4K display. Any thought as to what I might be doing wrong?

    Are you doing it over HDMI or mDP?

    mDP. I'm also able to get 51.75 Hz at 4K on this thing over mDP on a 2013 13inch rMBP which is pretty great. Just wish I could get scaling working!

    I've also tried over HDMI and am able to get 30 Hz 4K but no scaling.

    I have the same question! i think it's an OSX limitation...
    I'm asking if someone could write an app, or maybe there is a command in terminal to activate retina options also for "older" macs? Or do you think in ElCapitan will be present a retina option also for older macs with 4k displays?
