Is this compatible with the standard MacBook as well?
Would this work with the newest regular MacBook release?

Well the first thing is to know which 12" MacBook you have. I am going to assume the Early 2016 version.
Looking at Apple's Tech Specs page found in their KBase article SP741
Dual display and video mirroring: simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 3840 by 2160 pixels at 30Hz on an external display, both at millions of colors
However, this monitor has a res of 5120-by-2880 so it does not look like it would be possible with the MacBook to drive this particular monitor.
Hope this helps!

No, it will not. The 4K 21.5" will because it is using a USB C cable for input/output. This monitor uses Thunderbolt 3, and the 12" MacBook does not support the Thunderbolt protocol.

The 4K works just fine with the MacBook. (Got my 4K yesterday). I would expect the 5K to work with it as well.
