4k in our future?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hello,
I've seen that asus hes announced their first 4k PC monitor. It is 31.5" big. (Asus PQ321- presented an computex)
My question is: when do you think 4k monitors will be standard in high end PCs having a price of around 300-500€?

Not for a good few years yet I don't think. It's all well and good having the displays, but you need people to jump on board in making the content for it too.

The general masses are probably pretty happy with 1080p at the moment.

in my opinion the graphics cards market is preparing itself for the impact of 4k. examples:
-gtx titan 6gb
-gtx 780 3gb
-7990 6gb
-gtx 790 most likely 6gb

every brand out there doubled it's memory and improved the clock speed.

I think that content and hardware providers are keen to get 4K to the consumer.

There's a lot of money to be made by getting people to upgrade their TVs, internet connections etc.

PCs don't become obsolete at the rate they used to, so 4K content is an opportunity to push the consumer to buy more advanced hardware.

Man i hope so. The fact that my phone is 441PPI and my monitor is only 109PPI bums me out. The thing that i am wondering about if the regression that might take place in terms of refresh rate. All these 4k solutions so far have all been 60hz. After using 120hz going back to 60 gives me a headache. May be years before we see price viable 4k screens and even a few more years before we see those at +60hz. There has been a lot of talk about this lately and after really looking into 4k screens and their projected pricing i have realized that getting my 120hz 1440p Qnix was more future proof than i originally thought(aside from lightboost and some other small feature enhancements).

Last i heard that 4k Asus was going to be about $5000 and it is 140PPI. On one hand $5000 is not bad as an opening flagship price i mean think about the prices that flat panels were when they first debuted. On the other hand my Qnix is 109PPI vs this guys 140PPI which is not much of a jump. You add $4700 to the price, remove 120hz and your not looking at a very good deal. Plus these monitors are going to have to eventually compete with triple monitor solutions. Right now for 5 grand you could buy 3 name brand 1440p monitors or rig up a triple monitor laptop panel build running WAY higher PPI for a fraction of the price.

With that being said i hope that these facts do not break progress with making these mainstream and cheap ASAP.

When 1440p become a standard. It means when they will dropped around to 200-300 bucks.
