This question is basically about how do different resolution settings affect the performance of your MacBook.
By default retinas are set at the "retina" display mode. You can also set them to the "more space mode", and with 3rd party tools you can go native (much higher)!
But what I want to know is, how does "upping" the res affect the performance of the mac, in particular how does going beyond the retina option affect:
- The CPU
- The GPU
- RAM (I imagine there is no effect here?)
- Battery life (I imagine this depends on how much the CPU/GPU is affected?)
And if any of these are affected, is the relationship 1:1, or exponential, or what?
