I'm wondering the same thing. We have 4K TVs, for which there is no content that is even able to be feasibly rendered at such a resolution other than video games and which are too large and not even affordable (aside from the SEIKI model, but that still too large to be used as a monitor for me). We have laptops with high PPI displays, most of which have horribly slow GPUs. We have smartphones and tablets with high PPI displays, on which the benefits of a high PPI display show in reading and on which people don't even do graphics work (aside from those graphics tablets I've seen). But no desktop monitor in the 20-24" range sports such a resolution aside from the IBM T220/T221 and their rebrands. But those are 12-year-old monitors and even used models are still extremely expensive. Seriously, we have GPUs powerful enough to render games at 4K and DisplayPort 1.2 which can carry such a signal and there are programs which could benefit from such displays that desktop users commonly use (Photoshop, 3D modelling programs, games), but there is no display that can take advantage of these. What is the display industry thinking?
