Good question. I wish I knew the answer to that. I've always color calibrated my monitor as accurately as possible to fit my "eye".. If it looks good, it has always printed fine. It's always looked great when I've uploaded to the web. Not sure about support for any adobe RGB or sRGB, but I'm sure they wouldn't leave that out. I'm really not sure. I never actually thought about the color on a 4k monitor and the support it might offer, so now I'll have some things to look into. I was mainly just commenting because the resolution would really help for pixel peeping. I could view my images to their full potential (for the most part) without having to zoom in and actually look at individual pixels (which yes I've had to do this before, I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my photography). Keep in mind, with the way things are upgrading these days, I wouldn't worry too much about it "NOW" and give it a year or two. I'm personally doing well with a 1920x1080 monitor for gaming and editing.
Now, I guess I'll try to answer the question you've started to ask in this thread. What's the point of a 4k tv "today"? I'm not sure, I just know it LOOKS amazing, and people don't really care about the rest. But we here at OCN are of a higher breed haha!
