Want to upgrade from BenQ XL2420T 1080p to 1440p.. - Page 2

post #11 of 12
You could always wait until 4K Monitors are out in Q2.

I mean I've considered 1440p IPS/PLS, but then I began to think:

(2.1m pixel)
1080p + 80% = 1440p (3.6m pixel)
1080p + 400% = 4K (8.1m pixel)

roughly...

@ADragg yeah 1440p with G-sync would be great in fps games, but still it's a TN panel with extreme price.. not going that way, ever. smile.gif

@jameschisholm What is the point of having 4K monitor when there is not powerful graphic cards that can drive games to 60 fps at that resolution.

Anyway, I've got my PB278Q yesterday and I am very happy with my decision. smile.gif
