Exactly. 4k is doable by the cards today but would prolly take at least 3 way for high settings and some aa.

I would think that the next true gen (not refresh) of gpus would be able to do it more realistically.

1600p is just Begining to be plausible on a single card and let's be serious 2 cards is what you would need to play 1600p correctly.

So I can see 2 cards being able to pull off 4k without hacking settings down. In the next gpu architecture.

I'll wager that a GTX 660 TI will play most games at 4k, but at medium settings and many at high settings.

I'd think so too, but I'm unsure of the memory required for 4k though... Would a single screen outdo 2GB?

Well, there's 8GB of this GDDR5 VRAM. 4GB of it may be used by a game... Or maybe less than 1GB... depends on the game and level of optimization.

Doubtful a 660Ti can accomplish this, maybe 670/680 or 7950/7970 minimum and not for optimal gameplay >imHo<.

I remember seeing a video where they put 4 ps3 to run gt5 in 4k. So ps4 would need to have 4 time to processing power cpu/gpu wise to achieve this.

The PS4 is getting a 7850 equivalent though. And I would not doubt that I could play a few of my games in 4K.

That depends on what you're trying to do. A fighting game, for example, would see virtually no benefit from running at 4K. On the other hand, any shooter where you engage the enemy from a distance would benefit greatly from increased resolution, even if it's at the expense of some graphical fidelity (you're probably better off without a bunch of blur filters anyway).

Shooters also benefit from increased framerates too, I can't wait for the day we get to run around in a military simulator running 8K@120hz.

The idea that the PS4 is "incapable" of running 4K is ridiculous. PCs from ten years ago were running 2560x1600, we have multiple orders of magnitude more power than that now. The problem is market conditions, that's all.

I don't care if console games aren't 60 fps, I only need that on pc. I care much more about AA, I can't stand playing games with jaggies every where, especially on shadows.

PCs from 10 years ago couldn't really run games all that well at 2560x1600. No one has said the PS4 can't run at 4K, they are saying it can't run games at 4K.

Then you should have a look here:

http://hexus.net/tech/reviews/graphics/37253-three-screen-geforce-gtx-680-vs-radeon-hd-7970/?page=2

The GTX 680 running games on high at 5760x1080. Every title, except for Just Cause 2, was under 30 FPS. Now just imagine the less powerful GTX 660 Ti powering at least 30% more pixels.
