    Very tempted to pull the trigger on a rMBP 13" 512ssd and 16gb ram
    Thinking I would cop a igzo UHD monitor, wondering if the MBP can drive such a monitor!

    I really don't know why this thread hasn't been answered. I have the exact same question - namely, can the new rMBP run a 4K display at 60Hz (in clamshell mode).

    Here's apple's official page for this question:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT6008?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

    But this doesn't really answer if it will be able to drive a 3840x2160 screen in clamshell mode at 60Hz which it SHOULD based on the fact that thunderbolt 2 includes support for mini display port 1.2 technology which DOES include 60Hz support for a 3840x2160 screen natively
