No, VGA is an anolog video technology that at best is 1920x1080 (DVI is digital, and often times is considered to have sharper text). As for what resolution you can output to from your computer: that can be limited to what your computer supports. I suspected your older Mac wouldn't be able to fully output UHD resolutions (it's just too new of a standard). As for your other post about calibrators...what's limiting about the Spider 4? I have a X-rite Color Monki that works well, but would only consider upgrading if I found it wasn't working.
Fair enough, i shouldn't think more about it, but as i said, the important point is that i should look for monitor that is large enough for me regardless what resolution it is, for long time i used to that ACD so i think i can get used to something better with new monitor as long it has good gamut and color quality.
I have to test my Spyder 4 again, my Spyder 3 stopped working once i updated my computers, and i didn't calibrate my Mac since long time with Spyder 4, so maybe it is still working, or maybe new OS is no longer compatible with Spyder 4, that is why they have newer version then, but i feel that X-Rite is better than Spyder versions somehow, from different reviews i see the edge going to X-Rite, but they choose i1 Display over Color Munki, and that what i was planning to get.
Until now i didn't decide on which monitor of that larger size than 30", i can't just look at their specifications and choose one, in some point i want NEC but it is very pricey, then Dell is most rated, and then BenQ as another good option for monitor, ASUS and Samsung have mixed reviews or feeling, good i tested my Mac Mini on my TV and found out that settings need to be changed, just color quality wasn't right on TV, monitor should be, but i don't know if i can calibrate my TV with calibration device too, when i use PC windows it is just right and i don't need to change things, while when i connect to Mac it is different, i only want new monitor for Mac not Windows desktop.
