[3DGURU]-PC Gaming in UHD(4K)-Benchmark review

There's a lot to say and tell about what we tested for you guys today. Fact is, Ultra High Definition at a 3840x2160 resolution kicks ass. Now that said, this won't be everybody's cup of tea alright as there are some drawbacks you need to keep in mind. Next to that sure, you need a whole lot of horsepower to be able to game at this resolution. But let's simply break down this page with a number of items I like to discuss.

I'm one of the crazy ones that eventually wants to jump into this category of gaming at that res. Looks like the current need is SLI 780's for decent performance, better start saving!

2 gtx 780's will be cheap compared to the screen, dont you think?

In Norway that asus screen equals 6 gtx 780's in price.

Not really, the Seiki 39 inch is $700. I'm waiting on the Asus 39 inch, should be under $1000.

Lol, this... I mean of course we all want the best of the best, but let's be honest is that higher quality resolution worth the price tag?

I wouldn't even consider this.

I doubt it'll be under a k even though the panel is so much cheaper asus is going to overprice it.

Tbh, the display hardware is here, the graphics hardware is here (modern GPUs can power 3840x2160), the only thing missing is the cable hardware. We're still waiting on cables with bandwidth to drive 3840x2160 @ 60Hz.

I have the 39" Seiki 4k and I love it. I have no issue with the 30 Hz limit supplied by HDMI 1.4. Currently running a single MSI 7950 twin Frozr and haven't had any issues yet (Overclocked to 1100/1500), thought I haven't run any recent AAA titles yet at Ultra.

I can run 3x EVE clients maxed out and each window is larger than a 1080p screen.

never heard of Moores Law? The screens and the gear to run them will be affordable for all in a couple of years. Feel free to stay 1080p.
