What is the highest resolution I can get on a Samsung 4K monitor with Mid2011 iMac?
I have a Dell 4K connected at 3840*2160. The monitor is a cheap one and only support 30hrz at full resolution but for documents its fine. Text is small even on this 29" display
Does anyone have any more experience with 4K monitor w/ 2011 imac?
I am looking to see if it will support 60hz for 4k external monitor.
I have AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB..
This article from Apple would indicate there might be an issue on the 2011 iMacs
4. Can I connect to my 4K Ultra HD TV or 4K display via Thunderbolt?
4K Ultra HD TVs are supported over HDMI or with Thunderbolt to high-speed HDMI adapters. Thunderbolt 2 is required to use a 4K display. All Thunderbolt 2 models support 4K displays at 30Hz in Single Stream Transport mode. Some models support 4K displays at 60 Hz in Multi Stream Transport mode. See HT6008 for more information on using 4K displays. Specific 4K DisplayPort displays are supported on Thunderbolt with a mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable.
It's simple : if you have 1st gen. Thunderbolt, it's limited to 2160p30.
