That's too bad

I've had this seiki for around 6 weeks and have seen some 4k games games using a 580 and 560ti sli and it is immediately a noticeable improvement at approx. 6 feet distance. Btw have bought a titan and 690 that both turned out to be fraud on ebay which has prevented me from doing more. Hopefully 3rd time is the charm, titan supposedly will arrive today. If this doesn't work I will go retail in the future.

In the meantime have tried to see differences on br movies any can't find any improvement, so the dot doubler on the tv doesn't work for me. Ran it through a 2012 onyko 4k upscaling avr also with no improvement. Tried 2013 models of sony, lg, and Panasonic upscaling br players with no imp. Next I will try the sony 1040 avr I'm hoping its upscaler processing chip is similar to the one in its 4k tv because that looks fantastic to me in the showroom. I can't seem to find detailed info on which versions of qdeo by marvel the avr vendors are using and some don't use it at all.

I will download timescapes and play with youtube for content any other ideas where I can get non games content? Of course I have 200 steam games but seems like only half dozen new ones have support for 4k. I cant get google to help me find an exhaustive list of 4k compatible games either.

Games look better to me. Similar to going from 720 to 1080p. 3840x2160p crysis looks like a nice bump in graphics compared to 1080p. I'm pleased with the look but I'm a bit of a gfx whore.

After buying just ONE titan on ebay and it being fraud, why would you do it two more times?

By then it becomes worth the extra price to make damn sure you aren't being scammed. Seems like everyone I hear about buying a titan on ebay is getting somehting else in the box...

As for games being "4k compatible" it is pointless to even bother. As long as the game properly supports using the resolution profiles presented by the drivers/os, it will run at 4k. The aspect ratio is still 16:9, so there is no reason why modern games shouldn't be able to do that resolution.

In the case of older games, where the resolution is controlled purely by the engine (like D2, 800x600 max ftl), you just wind up with the monitor scaling it. But even D3, which doesn't support surround whatsoever, manages to do "windowed fullscreen" at the native resolution of my portrait surround setup. It displays a resolution much lower in the settings, but it still fullscreens to the whole setup and works great.

Thankfully this titan is legit and works natively with the tv sensing 3840x2160 and games doing the same. That is nice I didn't know it would do that after the gtx 580 not doing that. After finishing the last of us, at that frame rate, the 30hz looks fine for me. By the way I happen to sit 4 -6 feet away due to my man cave setupso I do notice the increased resolution.

How were you able to display 3840x2160 native on the seiki? I thought the GTX 580 didnt support 4k? I have a gtx 580 sli configuration and was wondering since it's sli'd would it be possible to support 3840x2160.
