Is there any solution for the Retina?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBookPro_Retina
following this instruction, I could not make its graphics as perfect as native MacOS.
is there a way to make it looks clearly?

Go to the bottom of that page you referenced and there is a thread about the macbook retina.  (Which you probably would have found with any searching at all, so please search before posting)  Any potential answer to this issue would likely be covered in that thread.

Unfortunally, I did not found any thread useful. So I turn to open a new thread to ask a question about retina display directly. Thanks for your reply.

Re: Is there any solution for the Retina?

The way Apple's retine displays work is by using huge resolutions, and then using 4 pixels to represent every 1 pixel, thus resulting in a normal size resolution of usable space but making everything much softer and smoother looking. The 13.3' MBP with retina ships with a 2560x1600 display but its scaled resolution is 1680x1050. Arch does not do that scaling which is why it doesn't look quite as nice to you. There may be a way to do it, but I don't know off the top of my head.
