The best way, I've seen, to show the difference is a side-by-side. If you still have some HD, HD+ display, get a decent camera and capture a game scene on those, then on the Dell, put them side by side. What we should be able to clearly see is the pixel density and contrast difference. If you had a camcorder you could try recording a short clip from a human-like POV perspective, given a reasonable distance from the display.
Yep I hear ya!

Its the one thing I forget to buy. I did have a cheap sony SLR for about 2 months but I broke it. ;( but it made life so much easier.

Ok i did the following 4 shots to compare what 4K no AA looks like to 1440p no AA, 1080p no AA and 1080p MSAA x4

i did this using the resolution scale option and using my Dell UP2414Q's 3840x2160 as 100% resolution scale.

Now, was 1080p really THAT blurry as balls or is it just a side effect of using the scaler? i did 25% on the scaler, which for 4K should be 1080p.

But, I don't remember 1080p being that BLURRY ever. Maybe it's because once you go 4K, anything below is blurry balls town.


That being said, 1440p provides the best balance between the two resolutions, and i can attest to myself that i was wowed more by going 1080p to 1440p than 1440p to 4K.


The real "Wow" factor of 4K is that the horizons are a lot sharper. but at the same time, not as important as what's close up to you, of which 1440p provides the immediate benefits.


EDIT: i just realized the downscaler made 1080p look worse than it is, but BF4 isn't letting me pick 1440p or 1080p on resolution change list, you have the same problem?

I think the scaling issue with 1080p looks average compared to 1080p on a 4k tv because the monitor doesn't have upscaling capabilities. So 4 pixels on a 4k panel equal 1 on the 1080p resolution. - very blocky. However I totally agree with you on the 1440p front. I want the new ROG monitor for my AUX and FPS gaming monitor. But the 4k dell is no slouch with FPS either.

Our Dells do have a scalar present, it's just that they don't work in MST mode which is needed for 4K 60Hz with the underpowered timing controllers that's available now.

Basically, yes there is scaling if you're bothered to manually switch through the Dell OSD on the monitor to switch between SST and MST mode. This workaround does not have to be done once updated monitors with 4k 60hz capable timing controllers comes out.

Thank you for posting. It really doesnt seem you need AA @ 4K. What is your verdict?

Been using this for a week now

dqvWwcdl.jpg

impressions-

Good-

+32" is an amazing size, not too big not too small, perfect size if you like big screens.
+4k looks fantastic, everything is super crisp and sharp. Couldn't go back to 1080p.
+Games look like another generation ahead. 4k Titanfall looks like a different game compared to the 792p Xbone version.
+MST mode works flawlessly(with NVIDIA)
+Color out of the box is very good. On par with previous Dell IPS displays.
+Good black levels and very minimal bleeding.
+Input lag seems good(or at least un noticeable)








Bad-
-Windows/Monitor Sleep mode causes the resolution to change and only way to fix is a full reboot.
-Some games don't launch at 4k and have to be changed in game then rebooted to get to the full 4k in game.
-Typical Dell AG coating, not too bad, but would have loved the monitor with out AG or with a high gloss option.
-Windows 8.1 text scaling options suck at the moment. I would love to see what Apple does and have a pixel doubler. Otherwise text and windows are super small. Doesn't bother me much, but if you have bad up close vision this could suck until Windows has better scaling options in the future.
-No bios on boot when plugged into displayport on GPU(mobo display port does show bios though)

Overall I love the monitor, couldn't go back to a 27" or 30" 1080p/1440p.

windows sleep mode or the monitor going to sleep doesn't change my resolution, you just have to turn it off and then back on for it to be back to normal.

Although this is the 24 inch model though.

The sleep mode happens to me too. But is easily fixed by turning the monitor off and back on again. (Amd cards)
post #40 of 57
for 2D, NON first person shooter gaming, what video card would you guys use on this 4K monitor?
