Where is the Patch? I Cant find it. I have a Single Cable 5k Display and can't get the 5K resolution, just 4K.
Unless the screen supports DP 1.4 there's no way a patch would allow 5K over a single cable, and the dell screen certainly doesn't.

I do not have the Dell. My 5K Screen supports DP 1.4. That's why I´m looking for the Patch. It works perfekt on Windows but in macOS I have just 4K.

Which display is it? Maybe macOS won't allow 5K because pixel depth would be limited to 8 bpc when using HBR3 (DisplayPort 1.3 or 1.4) instead of dual HBR2 (dual cable or dual link DisplayPort 1.2)?

Have you tried SwitchResX in macOS? Check the EDID? Create a custom resolution?

There was a patch to enable dual cable 5K displays on Nvidia that are not the Dell UP2715K. That won't help single cable 5K displays.

It´s the same panel Apples uses for their iMacs. It´s a LG LM270QQ1 Panel.
I have a Thread here.

I tried switchResX. nothing happened. Here is the EDID. I don't know what I should check in the EDID.
