I am planning on buying a 4K monitor. I currently have a mid-2012 Non-retina Macbook Pro. I know I won't be able to run on the 4K monitor full-res. I don't mind. I was thinking of using SwitchRes (a software that allows you to scale up and down your mac resolution), to run in 2K resolution on that 4K monitor.
Would it work? Will I be able to run at around 60hz in 2K resolution on a 4K monitor?
The reason I'm not buying a 2k monitor, is that I'm planning on upgrading my computer in 1 or 2 year. And that computer will have a better graphic card and compatibility with 4K displays, so I'm thinking long term here.
But I need to know if I can do what I'm planning with my current macbook pro and that 4K monitor, or if it won't work.
Thanks a lot!
