  • Apple's High-End 15-Inch MacBook Pro Now Supports Dell's 5K Display

    Apple’s support document on its website was updated recently to say that their high-end 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro is able to run Dell’s dual-cable UP2715K 27-inch 5K display. Apple’s high-end MacBook Pro is equipped with AMD Radeon R9 M370X graphics. The Cupertino-based company actually added support for the dual cable 5K monitor back when OS X 10.10.3 was released, but the display was not supported by any notebooks at the time.

    Dual-Cable Displays

    Some displays with resolutions higher than 4K require two DisplayPort cables to connect the display at full resolution. With OS X Yosemite v10.10.3 or later, the Dell UP2715K 27-inch 5K display is supported on the following Mac computers:

    Mac Pro (Late 2013)
    iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2014 and later)
    MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) with AMD Radeon R9 M370X
    The dual-cable 5K display from Dell currently uses a dual-cable solution because it needs more bandwidth than what is currently supported, therefore on a Mac, two Thunderbolt ports need to be used. According to Apple’s support document, most single-stream 4K displays are supported by the high-end 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro.
