I we do have some of those 5k LGs are work but, I would have needed to find an adapter, it would have still been running at 4k, and the reality is that 5k doesn't really look any different than 4k on a 27" display.

I'm pretty sure that iGPU variants of modern Macbook Pros will drive two 5k displays. I know they can at least drive 1x5k and 1x4k as I work with a co-worker who's currently doing that.
One, but not two IIRC

Major LOL at some of these slides. Intel is telling us "2K" resolution looks that bad on their products?

I hope the term "Visually lossless" is true... 50% compression surely cannot be easy to pull off without some kind of artifacts? I guess you just have to figure out what the right failure mode is, then it will be a case of once you see it, you'll never be able to unsee it again.
