Today we welcome a new innovation, one that will revolutionize the way you view your games. Companies call it Ultra HD, UHD, UHDTV, 4K Ultra HD, and 4K, but all you really need to know is that new "4K" 3840x2160 monitors feature four times as many pixels as the most commonly used 1920x1080 screens, opening your eyes to rich, superbly-detailed worlds at a time when consoles struggle to run at 1280x720. If you have a high-end GeForce GTX PC, you’re ready for the revolution. Just plug and play and you’ll receive a flawless experience that works immediately with no fuss. But why is it a revolution? What makes 4K the next big thing?

Simply put, when you play the latest blockbuster games at 1920x1080 on your top-end PC you’re not getting the complete experience - most developers create textures and other assets at much higher resolutions, and compress them when playing at lower screen resolutions. When you game on a 4K monitor you see all the detail. All the nuance.
