2K ips panel Yamakasi 30" VS Samsung 4K TN panel 28"

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi,
Im wondering which of these monitors are the best for gaming. Ive been torn between the two.
Yamakasi
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/YAMAKASI-301-SPARTA-30-LG-S-IPS-Slim-Panel-2560x1600-16-10-DVI-D-PC-MONITOR/111248077546?_trksid=p5197.m2280&_trkparms=aid%3D222002%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D312%26meid%3D5275255120945738029%26pid%3D100068%26prg%3D1171%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D111248077546%26clkid%3D5275258442276420522&_qi=RTM1731718
Samsung
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Samsung-U28D590-UHD-Monitor-28-4K-3840-x-2160-1ms-TN-panal-HDMI-Display-Port-/121283686443?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_Monitors&hash=item1c3d12302b

The samsung has 10bit colour depth but im not sure if there would be a visual difference against the yamakasi's 8bit
Help would be much appreciated

@kayway It seems both of the links you've posted are for the Yamakasi monitor, could you provide the correct link to the samsung?

What's wrong with 1440p PLS? Running at 96hz+ is so much better biggrin.gif

Anyway, out of those 2, I'd go with the Yamasaki monitor. IPS is much better than TN, and I don't think 4k monitors can even run at 60hz.

1600p monitors suffer from increased IPS glow, and grainy matte coatings. Don't get the Sparta. Consider the 120Hz 1440p Qnix QX2710.

It'll be much harder to get constant 60fps on a 4k. Besides, the Samsung 4K is a TN panel. Go for the Qnix, or one of the domestic 1440p monitors like the Viewsonic VP2770, BenQ BL2710PT, or the Eizo EV2736W.

You probably need at least SLI 780 if you want to have at least 30 frames per second at all times with a 4K monitor...

Hardly, I think a LGA 2011 CPU + 780 would handle 4k at ~60hz just fine. 8x MSAA might drop the framerate a bit, but light SMAA is all that's necessary at 4k/28" anyway.

As I said before, 30hz is just too slow for gaming IMHO, and pretty much all 4k screens are limited to that atm.

Sure, if you like gaming on medium details, 35-40 fps is attainable in next gen games on a single 780. I was referring more to Ultra details.

Im pretty sure if you use a display port on the samsung monitor it can do 60hz, right?

Actually, you may be right...

Hmm, touch choice. Personally, I'd take 2560x1440 IPS over a 4k TN monitor, but either choice is good. Heck you hardly need anti-aliasing on that Samsung, maybe light SMAA at most, so performance should be adequate on either.

I wonder when that Samsung monitor will come to the US biggrin.gif
