280x Crossfire driving a 4K Panel - what do you think?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Good morning friends!

I've been considering going 4K with a cheap TN panel in September with my Crossfire 280x setup. My friend reckons they won't be able to pull it, and since I can't find benchmarks online for crossfire 280x at 4K, I've had to extrapolate from the closest thing I could find. Using BioShock Infinite as a reasonable point of comparison, I reckon 40-45FPS, which isn't 60, but I can deal with it I suppose.

What's your opinion on this? Has anyone tried it themselves? I don't want to spark a debate about if 4K monitors are worth it or whatever, so stick to the question at hand, please, this isn't about the current viability of 4K panels, it's about the hardware combination.

i think as long as your expectations are realistic there's nothing to worry about. you may find that gaming at that resolution in certain games does make it hard to play due to stuttering and low fps but less taxing games should be fine.

My main reason for going 4K is graphic design (Yeah, I get it, TN panels are garbage for graphic design) so I'd probably scale down the res on most games anyway. To be fair, it's more than likely still gonna churn out more than 100FPS on League of Legends/DotA 2 anyway, and those are the only games that would really benefit from a larger res. I might play around with AA/AF settings on other games since I heard they don't need to be amped up as much on larger resolutions. It's all speculation until I actually get a 4K panel, I suppose.
