    I am trying to calibrate my iMac 27 inch 5K monitor (latest model). I'm using X-Rite's i1 Pro. I've read that the new panel uses "GB-LED" panel vs. the older iMac's "White-LED" panel. I can't find anything to support this.

    Anyone know for sure what type of panel it uses?

    Yes it's the new red-green phosphor LED panel. 100% sure. ;)

    The new Imac uses LEDs with a blue emitter and green and red phosphor,the red phosphor uses an effect of quantum dots.By the way the same color is used in tablets and smartphones sony z. The problem is that the software x-rite i1Profiler has not yet prepared the adaptation matrix for i1display pro,I think they'll do it later. For accurate calibration,at this stage, you need to use a spectrometer, for example,i1pro or colormunki photo to them matrix adaptation is not needed
