The XFX 390X I own set to factory clocks has enough VRAM to load textures at 4K at decent FPS. I was ready to venture into a LG free sync ultra-wide but came across a AOC 4K 60Hz TN 28 " for 350 USD at my local Microcenter so I pulled the trigger. Do not start flaming the TN panel it is the same one used by Samsung in their $700 version.
I do scientific imaging for a living and have seen many displays including a $20,000 Eizo which will correct any issues you may have at a price beyond affordable. My AOC has one flaw, a single edge stuck pixel which is in a spot where it is not noticeable. Yes there is minor off axis shift of colors
I also have a 4K TV for other viewing, it has a decent scaler as Agent Smith noted with his experience.
There are some minor desktop scaling issues with Win 10 and 4K, however all program windows and text are crisp and sharp.(word, excel, PP and Adobe Photoshop CS suite).
My gaming target is 40 FPS min, anything lower the free sync drops out unless you mod the drivers. I use V sync or target frame control to avoid tearing on some titles if above refresh rate.
I also turn off AA at 4K, personal preference.
I game on ultra on Verdun @ 75 FPS,
Multiplayer Crysis 3 @ 60 FPS very high settings,
Star Wars BF on ultra 60 FPS steady and higher if V sync is disabled,
Need For Speed 60 FPS ultra, med AO, Gorgeous in 4K
Metro LL 50 FPS very high, no PhysX, no SSAA,
COD BO3 90 FPS maxed out
Alien Isolation ultra 60 FPS min
Bioshock inf ultra 60 FPS min
Titanfall ultra 60 FPS with AO turned down a bit.
Dirt Rally ultra 60 FPS steady.
For the price it is highly recommended, my son has a Asus Strix 970 and there are no affordable 4K g sync displays, go team Red!!!!!
