The point is, with either of the two 27" monitors mentioned, I needed a mini-DisplayPort / Thunderbolt + USB to Dual-Link DVI Adapter to achieve 2560 x 1440 resolution.

Again a cheap mini displayport to displayport cable will be fine. I run two Dells (27 @2560x1440, 24 @ 1920x1200) from my retina using two of the cheapest cables I could buy from Amazon.

Whoa, wait, what?

You are able to get full resolution using a mini displayport to displayport cable? I must have read more than 50 posts on DP (and elsewhere), saying that an adapter like this one was needed to display full resolution from the MBPR on an monitor other than a TB Display.

I thought (meaning I was certain), that 2560x1440 was only available via Dual DVI. Is that wrong?

Thanks for the message. Hoping we will get additional confirmations about this.
