Just give me a 720p 30hz TN screen and I'll be happy.

Wait what year is it ?

twice as long and twice as wide = 4x the area, or total pixels in this case, not 2x.

Nop
3840x2160 = 8294400 pixels
1920x1080 = 2073600 pixels

8294400 = 4x2073600
therefore
3840x2160 = 4x 1920x1080

3840 x 2160 fits 4 1080p screen resolutions in one screen

4K is 4048x4048. It has been since like the late 90s.

Thanks but no thanks. If I'm rolling with that many pixels I'd want beauty in color too.

I would prefer a 2560x1440 144/120hz monitor for today single fastest video cards than a UHD monitor at 60hz for the half of the price

I was talking about resolution size not about pixels.

never crossed my mind about the quantity of pixels.thanks for remembering

It's called 4k because the horizontal resolution is approximately 4000 pixels. Professional monitors are typically described in horizontal resolution while consumer screens are descriped in vertical resolution (1080p, 720p). This is why "true" 4k is 4096 pixels. The industry did something similar with the introduction of 1080p, as it's a narrower version of 2k, which is actually 2048x1080, but nobody really went for the 2k moniker because HD worked just fine.
