comment How do I get my late-2012 MacBook Pro to work with my Seiki 39 inch 4k monitor?
Hi @JohnAllen, I'm afraid I've now sent the monitor back. It was annoyingly temperamental one when it would detect DP source after sleeping. Also some flashes of randoms blocks on bottom quarter of screen would force me to reboot (may have been a driver thing). Performance wasn't noticeably slower. I noticed the refresh rate lag when moving the cursor dragging windows etc but not a big enough problem. Editing photos in Lightroom was a pleasure. I mostly used the 1080p HiDPI mode most which was too chunky really but the quality was great. There are rumours of a 5k iMac which would be awesome

I also have the late-2012 rMBP with intel HD4000 graphics and managed to get 3840x2160 @30Hz. I just used a normal mini-dp<->dp cable. Full details and settings on my blog post: mattburns.co.uk/blog/2014/09/30/…

Thanks, but that isn't the problem, I already disabled that.

Good suggestion but it only added lower resolutions... (see updated question)

I've just updated my answer with my usage. Basically I only want to drive this external display so hopefully won't be any harder than driving the laptops current retina display...?
