Hi guys,
For people who have been keeping up with CES, it looks like there are a lot of much cheaper 4K monitors available now. I'm thinking about getting one but not sure about how well they'll perform. Should any 15" rMBP be able to drive one?

Thanks!

Currently you can drive them with a late 2013 rMBP in Windows at 4K, 60Hz over thunderbolt 2... however, not in OS X yet!

What about the early-2013 and mid-2012 rMBPs which only support Thunderbolt v.1? I presume v.1 tbolt will only support 30Hz or 60Hz interlaced. Other option would be if Apple launches an adapter which join two thunderbolt channels to bring non-interlaced, 60Hz support.
