I just bought new monitor (LG 24UD58-B) because of my MacBook's flexgate issue (when you can't really open lead). I can't bring it to service yet, because where I live it takes up to 5 weeks and it's my working computer.
For some reason I experience very laggy behavior while running in retina mode, it's definitely not 60 fps, probably closer to 25-30. It seems that the problem is in CPU spikes because other movements like moving the cursor and scrolling are fine sometimes. It is happening in all applications.
I'm using default hidpi mode, so no additional scaling is present. Laptop is working with closed lid. System is High Sierra.
Currently it is connected it with noname usb-c → displayport cable (the only I could get in my country).
Could the actual cable be the reason of the lag / slow performance?
Can I check somehow whether it's CPU vs cable? Because from apple site it seems that my model should handle 4k just fine.
The problem is I can't really check with another cable unless I order another one from amazon which ship around two weeks. I would probably better to return the monitor before that. I can just buy 1080p monitor for half of the price then.
I also tried running with HDMI adapter and it works pretty smooth in low resolution mode. I have small lag with the current cable even in low-resolution mode.
