I know I am late to this question, but I own the "MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Late 2013)" with "Intel Iris 1536 MB". I am currently using the macbook with the "Samsung SMS27A850" according to the system preferences it is currently running at 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz using the DisplayPort/Thunderbolt connection (not HDMI).

I had this exact same monitor about a 18 months ago (or so). That particular monitor requires a dual link DVI connection and most mDP to DVI aren't dual link. The one product that I found that worked really well was Kanex iAdapt Mini DisplayPort / Thunderbolt to DVI Adapter + USB I tested this on an iMac 27, a 2009 MacBook Pro, and a Surface Pro 3.

A Retina display's default resolution is 1440x900. I believe the screenshot feature takes a screenshot of what the monitor "seeds", so a 2560x1600 resolution of a 1440x900 screen. I'd have a look at RetinaCapture, an app designed to take screenshots on a Retina Mac.

Not according to EveryMac who are usually spot on with their info, including unsupported 'hacks', none of which are mentioned for this model. This model can simultaneously support the internal display at full native resolution and up to 4096x2304 on an external display in both extended desktop (second workspace) and video mirroring (internal display ...

Not only is this not impossible, but products that do this exist. DisplayPort (and therefore mini-displayport and thunderbolt) supports DVI and HDMI output over passive adapters using Dual-mode DisplayPort.
