Samsung 4K 1ms monitor $754 it has begun - Page 30

post #291 of 1323
Sorry guys, I was gonna upload a bunch of screenshots but my internet was out this weekend. frown.gif

I'll be putting them up after work today. I took a lot of different shots of different games. I'm very surprised how well my one R9 290 can hold up. Most older games can run 60fps on high/ultra settings, and current gen games run at about 30fps on ultra / 60fps on medium. I can turn AA all the way off and barely notice a difference. Divinity 2, GTA4, South Park, Van Helsing, Insurgency, and some other less intensive games are all great!

In a perfect world.. yeah 240p, 360p, 540p, 720p, and 1080p would all scale perfectly into any 2160p screen, but in reality they all differ.
Most use an upscaler that isn't just nearest-neighbor because most of the time people are scaling a 480p source to 1080p, or their 720p cable to their 1080p screen. When scaling isn't a multiple of the native res, different methods can give better results. But displays can be "stupid" and not realize this, and use that same method converting 1080 to 2160, slightly blurring or changing the image unnecessarily.

Bottom line is if you're looking for the best Blu Ray experience, buying a "4K" screen isn't always going to be the best option and might even degrade your viewing experience depending on the specific model you choose.

Here is a screenshot in it's original res and scaled 4x in GIMP and MS Paint, using all available methods.

I've had mine for 2 weeks now. My black-screening was different from what phallacy had going on. For the first week, I had the monitor connected using a power cable from my Sony HMZ-T3 as that had all the right plugs. The screen blacked out a total of 6 or 7 times in the first week, each time requiring the monitor to be unplugged and plugged back in to restore it. Then at the recommendation of users here I tried the power cable that came with the monitor using a European -> USA adapter plug. Oddly, this may have fixed it. I haven't had any blackouts in the week since I switched power cords.

I still get an occasional graphical artifact that is barely noticable. A horizontal line of corruption appears for perhaps one frame somewhere on the screen. Again, barely noticable and not really an issue.

BTW, I have had it plugged in to a Cyberpower 1350PFCLCD on the battery-backed side so I'm pretty sure the incoming power is clean. It boggles my mind that a 3 foot dumb power cord could have caused the issue...

Now I just need a graphics card that can do 4k gaming! LOL. I don't do SLI for a variety of reasons, not the least of which being that 2 of my bedrooms and the living room share one 15 amp circuit (outlets and lights too!).

Dear Customer.

Sorry for late shipping and your waiting.
We marked the handling time 10 biz days because of the fluctuation of delivery these days from our suppliers.
However, we will do our best to send it ASAP.
We expect that we can ship your item within 2 days.

Thank you for your kind understanding in advance.

Best Regards

Not sure if this is due to everyone and their moms wanting one, but definitely a good sign about the early acceptance of 4K!

Thanks for you response! Is the stand not adjustable at all? About how far up is the bottom of the monitor bezel off the surface?

Correct the stand is not adjustable. You just sort of screw the panel into the stand and you can tilt the display up or down but the range of motion is not much. It sits about 5-6 inches from bottom of the stand to the bezel. Luckily with a combo of low desk + higher chair and high back support make the viewing in a normal posture just fine.

Here's an album of some screenshots. I thought I had more but I took them all in Steam, and they simply aren't all showing up. Bastards. Anyways -

I too, have the single frame of slight graphical artifact every so often but it's so rare and so small that it's hard to really complain about it. Just an interesting byproduct of the magic technology they used for this awesome monitor.

Glad to see there are others enjoying this beauty as well! How is your 290 coping with the 4k res? What's your idea of "good" fps and what kind of visual settings are you using to achieve that?

Well, my idea of a good fps would be 60 or above. I can hit 60fps on most games, but I'll give it a range of 50-60 for the sake of the discussion. On all games, I turn all AA off, and older games (like the screenshots I posted) run at high settings. Newer games like BF4 will run 60fps at mostly medium settings (with high texture quality), with no AA of course. On a match I played the other day, it only dipped down into the 57fps range a few times.

While I will likely pick up a second GPU, I feel that one 290 is definitely usable at 4k resolution, but you WILL have to make sacrifices, period. For what it's worth, im a visual clarity stickler, and usually need to be on the highest settings, but the current playable settings are acceptable to me.
