4k or 120hz

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I would like to hear more from users that have given up on 120hz for 4K . Do you regret?

Please, I do not want any other answers relating to another resolution, or guessers biggrin.gif

I have both a 1440 120hz monitor and a 4k monitor, I personally much prefer 120hz 1440p as it is so much smoother and gaming is more fluid.

Do you find 120Hz/144Hz 1080p noticeably more attractive than 60Hz 1080p? In other words, if you're not looking for the difference on purpose, just enjoying your daily gaming, do you notice it?

If the answer is yes, don't switch (yet).

120/144hz, yes, unfortunately am running 60hz at the moment.

4k can do three things: preserve (large monitors) and increase the sharpness+clarity (small monitors; matte coatings greatly reduce the potential sharpness boost) for monitors and provide more pixel real-estate to work with. 4k is worthless when not viewing static content on monitors with 60hz refresh rates and without motion compensation since 60hz LCD sample and hold blur renders the differences moot (60hz vs 120hz vs motion compensation/Lightboost).

144hz AHVA/IPS/PLS with G-Sync & ULMB provide far sharper/clearer and smoother viewing experiences when not viewing static content since they suffer from far less blur and do not tear when F/G-Sync is enabled. There are many 'smart' people who buy 60hz 4k displays with LED PWM Dimming (more information) which further increases motion blur & artifacts (example) on top of 60hz sample and hold blur, and/or play on 4k monitors with V-Sync disabled. 4k will remain a gimmick for gaming until 4k monitors with high refresh rates or quality motion compensation (the Panasonic TX-50CX700B & TX-55CX802B are some of the only 4k TV's which do not have extremely high input lag when motion compensation/Intelligent Frame Creation is enabled; HD TV Test UK reviewed both) are available.

No regrets from 1080p 144hz and 1440p 120hz. Comes down to what games you play, things you do, and more importantly the panel. There are only so many decent 4K panels right now. Have to take opinions with a grain of salt unless you can order multiple things to try them out and return.

Right now?
1440p/144hz/120hz + Gsync.
Games are just absolutely blissful with this setup, only need a single 980Ti/Fury X to drive and majority of games has no issues.

4k really serves very little point currently. It's also still too expensive to drive a 60fps setup with it and the fact that still NOT ALL games actually support 4k resolutions (in-game DPI scaling for example) is somewhat of a turn off.
