This. It's amazing how many people think that computers are for gaming and nothing else.

In any case when the new ACD comes out it'll likely be 4k and will work flawlessly I'm sure so they will redeem themselves a bit.

Which brands are you talking about? Mind posting links or documentations?

4K works. Scaling had issues which has now been fixed. Not sure where you are getting your information from.

The rMBP had no 4K support officially.
With the new drivers the 15" with 750M has full 4K@60hz support. The basic 15" and 13" had only 4K@30hz support because of memory requirements from the internal GPU which causes it to hog too much from the main memory.
