    Will a new Mac Pro be able to drive those new 144hz monitors at that frequency? Or can it only do it in Bootcamp if at all? Thanks.

    Almost certainly this should be possible. I don't know if it works OOB.

    You may need to do one or both of the following:

    1) create a custom resolution using SwitchResX
    2) apply mac-pixel-clock-patch to remove pixel clock limits from the video driver in OS X

    I've looked into this some more and it seems like a hassle if even possible. I'll probably stick with a 1980x1200 monitor which I prefer to 1980x1080 monitors anyway.

    last i checked OS X has a 72? hz limit.

    also 1440p > 1080/1200p

    Source? I used a 15" rMBP with OS X Mountain Lion to drive a Seiki 50" 4K TV at 1080p at over 110 Hz.

    I have a BenQ XL2720Z 144Hz monitor connected to a 2011 Mac Mini and the Mini drives it with no issues. A new Mac Pro shouldn't have any issues whatsoever.
