Retina 4K display
21.5-inch (diagonal) Retina 4K display with IPS technology; 4096-by-2304 resolution with support for millions of colors
Every millimeter of the Retina display was designed, engineered, and built to the most exacting standards. Something that 14.7 million pixels makes exceedingly clear. As does a 1.4 mm thin display panel designed around the human eye — so every interaction feels as natural as can be. It’s that attention to detail that inspired the all-new 21.5‑inch iMac with Retina 4K display. And just like the Retina 5K display, it delivers a larger color palette with more accuracy.

You also get double the channel bandwidth, with 80MHz-wide channels providing more room for more data to flow faster than ever.
