The Sharp/Asus 4K display gets around this lack of silicon by having two dp1.2/hdmi1.4 TCons each of which is capable of doing 4K/2 @ 60hz. It contains a built in 2 port MST hub which lets you use a single displayport cable to feed these two TCons.
I would NOT purchase one of these early 4K monitors with this crappy split TCon setup.
While I agree with you about it being crappy, I have no intention to ever use more than one of them at a time anyways.
That being said, it depends on what NVidia does with their drivers to support this in the future. If they do it correctly, and use a different mode that enables the MST and treats it as a single monitor, then great.
If they simply enable 2 monitor surround, and it limits the number of auxiliary screens one can connect... Then I may not be so happy with it. I want to run a 4k with an auxiliary monitor on either side. Surround currently only allows 1 aux monitor while enabled, correct? This would suck.
I am looking forward to the upcoming star citizen game and being able to run to "wing" monitors, if they support such a setup in game that is.

Why is that such a huge problem for you? It is one panel, there is no seam in it. As long as the drivers support it, it will function as a single screen. It will take some slight tweaking, at worst, but it will work just fine.
And you are still missing what he is saying. The 39" monitor will not cost $3,500. It will be significantly less expensive.

If they don't fix that, NVidia is going to lose a lot of their high end customers. Those of us with the cash to buy Titans and run 4k, are generally more interested in the screen than the GPUs. I have a strong feeling that will mean a team change for many people, if they can't run 4k correctly.Edited by Masta Squidge - 7/8/13 at 7:16am
