    The LG UltraFine 5K Display requires a compatible Mac running macOS Sierra 10.12.1 or later. (macOS Sierra 10.12.2 or later is recommended.)
    You can use the LG UltraFine 5K Display with these Mac models:

    5120 x 2880 @ 60Hz
    MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2016)
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports)
    MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Two Thunderbolt 3 Ports)

    With the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and a Thunderbolt cable, you can use the LG UltraFine 5K Display at 4K and lower resolutions with these Mac models:

    3840 x 2160 @ 60Hz
    Mac Pro (Late 2013)*
    MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014) and later
    MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Early 2014) and later
    iMac (Retina, 27-inch, Late 2014) and later
    iMac (Retina, 21.5-inch, Late 2015)
    iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2015)
    MacBook Air (13-inch, Early 2015)
    MacBook Air (11-inch, Early 2015)

    3200 x 1800 @ 60Hz
    Mac mini (Late 2014)*

  • I was at the Apple store today and this monitor was plugged into a Mac Pro 2013. The system reported it was running at full resolution. The Mac Mini next to it was running another 5k display and it was running at lower resolution. The Mac Pro had the D500 cards in it. Is it possible that it can run at full resolution?

  • It says in the requirements you must have a Mac with Thunderbolt 3
