Dell 4K monitor what? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
So begs the question. Go for an IPS/PLS 1440p display now. Or wait for the SST 4k display? I'm a gamer, but I want high res and amazing colours.

I currently own a 23" 1080p TV which has 95ppi

If you have the gpu horsepower, just get the Dell UP2414q or the Lenovo 4k, they function very well despite their MST mode, however, no scaling in MST mode, so if proper scaling on 4k 60hz is important to you, wait for the SST 4k 60hz. But it's a long wait.

Well I've got an EVGA GTX 780Ti 3GB. I'm happy to lower my settings to "high" and turn off AA if I'm able to get 40fps+ in most games @ 3840x2160. I'm just so eager to buy a new monitor and its just so coincidental that manufacturers have unveiled all of these 4K Monitors, I hear theyre 10bit panels? So much better than mine tongue.gif ?

Is MST still buggy like it was when Asus released their 31.5" 4K Monitor late last year? Where you can only get 60hz if you manually enabled MST then restart the monitor?

well... clock for clock the 780 Ti is only 5% faster. translating to a 65mhz advantage for the same clock rate versus the Titan, and one 780 Ti is not going to do crysis 3 at Ultra settings no AA 60 fps. more like 25 fps. Takes two Titans or 780 Tis to go above 40+ fps most of the time.

MST still works like that, but the Dell monitors has no issues with booting into BIOS or not POSTing at all.


That said, there are still some quirks in MST monitiors, like no scaling support, so if you do 1080p fullscreen, it only takes up a rectangle in the middle of the screen.

And the sleep mode on this monitor is wonky sometimes, you're better off turning off the monitor when you're away from the PC.

They're not 10-bit panels, they're native 8-bit panels with AFRC to simulate 10-bit color.

This is still better than crap TN panels with 6 bit + AFRC anyway.

I suppose I could manage it by only enabling MST for 60hz when I'm gaming, then switching it back to SST while on the desktop..

I've played Crysis 3 to death now, I've moved on from that game, it's a shame there's no scalar. I'm playing tomb raider, metro last light, batmans, new ac4 and skyrim at the moment. Another 780 Ti maybe? Though I'm fine reducing things down to High/No AA/med shadows

Yes currently I'm most likely in the 6bit crap tn panel territory with my sammy 2333hd.

I recieved my new Dell UP3214Q today! However,,,,,,,,,



Im struggling to enable 2160p 60hz with mst.

2160p 30hz works easy with dp1.1



Ive enabled DP1.2 on the monitor and in Win 7 Screen Resolution settings im getting and error when I try and extend display to second half - "Unable to save display settings"

Ive been messing around for hours and Sometimes on the settings im able to see both halves side by side in mirror mode and sometimes i get one halve 1920 x 2160 and the other 1920 x 1080.

Ive installed the monitor drivers

I have 13.2 amd drivers installed

do i have to install the usb cable as well?

Ive tried disabling tri fire.



What a head ache!!!!



My system:

3930k

asrock extreme 11 x79

32gb 1866mhz ram

3x R9 290X
