    If you have at least the Late 2015 27-inch 5K iMac, with a Radeon R9 M380/M390/M395/M395X graphics card, then yes, this is compatible with that model of iMac, using an Apple Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 adapter and a Thunderbolt 2 cable. Other iMacs cannot support an external 5K display.

  • Apple says 5K LG display is compatible with late 2015 imacs, but with limited resolution at 4K. Is that statement right even with AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4096 MB or 5K is achievable ???
