Apple Putting More Emphasis On 4K

Today, Apple launched a new beta build of OSX 10.9.3. Apple is asking developers to put an emphasis in several key areas, one of which being 4K support and performance. In 10.9.2, Apple had a bit of a slip, with the Windows driver for the GPUs being capable of reaching 60Hz 4K but suffering a drop in frames in the native operating system.

With the price of 4K panels dropping into the realm of the reasonable and Apple being the tech leader it prides itself on, it’s possible that we could be seeing a slim iMac refresh capable of 4K in the near future. The line’s last 27″ model, having been launched in late 2012, has a maximum resolution of 2560×1440.
