It seems people still can’t stop gushing about the Retina Display-equipped MacBook Pro. Even days after its official launch, more and more interesting news are coming out about the secrets and abilities of this display.

It was iFixit that tore open the device to reveal that it was LG not Sharp that supplied Apple with the Retina Display for the new MacBook Pro.

Now, a group of experimenters has put this high quality display for a test to know its hidden abilities. According to Apple’s official claim, the Retina Display on the new MacBook Pro can support up to two external displays.

However, experimenters have found that the machine works without any lag or glitches even when it was connected to four external displays.

Apart from the Retina Display of the machine, two iMacs, each with 2560 x 1440 resolution were connected via Thunderbolt ports to the MacBook Pro along with an LG monitor of 1920 x 1200 resolution connected via HDMI port.

Those who ran the tests were amazed to see the machine finding it easy to handle moving images and graphics work without a glitch.

So it turn out that Apple’s claim was actually just an under estimation of the real power of the machine.
