    "One of the major questions regarding Apple’s 5K display is whether or not it would be a 30Hz or 60Hz panel. We’ve had an opportunity to see some demonstrations of gaming on the 27-inch iMac with 5K Retina display and can confirm that it’s a 30Hz panel when operating in 5K mode. Below 5K, the panel shifts to 60Hz, though we couldn’t confirm exactly when the 60/30 shift occurs. It’s a 60Hz panel up to at least 2560×1440."

    Is this a big deal or just a moot point. I want a 5K iMac for graphic & product design. Will I notice a difference at 30 Hz vs 60 Hz?

    Thanks

    I have the 5k and the screen is beautiful. I use it for gaming and don't see any difference in the refresh rate between regular and gaming mode
