Although they are a little while away, 4K 3D desktop monitors will be up for sale in the near future.

As many of you know, GPUs have their own dedicated memory to store all the information they process (High end is 2-4GB). The higher the resolution, the more memory it needs to store (I think 3D needs double the memory?). For three way NVIDIA surround, the monitor resolution on 1080p monitors is 5760x1080p, and this requires a lot of memory to store. 3 4K monitors in surround would be 11520x2160p!!!!

Do current GPUs have enough memory to store this massive amount of data, or will we have to wait for something crazy like a 8GB version of the GK110 GPU? I guess only time will tell, but what do you guys think?

That resolution would be 24 megapixels, compared to the 2-4 megapixels commonly run today but the VRAM requirement doesn't scale linearly and 3D has just a small effect on VRAM requirements. I would guess that 4GB might come close to being able to run it, but more likely 6GB.

It'll be a heck of a lot for 3D surround at that resolution, and i feel we are a few GPU generations away from being able to get playable frame rates to be honest. Also you need to remember 4K displays are a way off yet and won't be affordable to consumers for some years, plus the fact 4k content is non existant until a format comes along that replaces BluRay. Which i can't see happening anytime soon....lol

Also 4K surround would be 12288x2160 i believe...

graphics reps *lets up the vram pointlessly for more money but we will make 2gb versions 3gb verions 4gb versions 6gb versions 8gb versions all the way up to 100 and charge $100 per extra 2gb with no performance increase.
consumer(you guys) * THAT SOUNDS GREAT GIVE ME ALL THE VRAM PLX

There are multiple different resolutions for 4K, I don't think it's a set "Standard" like 1080p is. Either way, it's a lot of pixels.

For now, 4GB is all anyone needs. I would, however, like to see up to 8GB models. Past that point, I don't think anything will take more than 8GB for a long time (For now...)

i have three GTX 680 Classified OCed but still cant play 8080 X 1440 Resolutions in Ultra Settings.

the question is how much GPU power still needed to render in this 4K Resolution?
