I simply stated they where capable of it. I didn't say anything about how well they performed at all, that is your insulation to back hand comment anything a person may say about a CRT being capable of running a "4K" resolution which is actually 2560x1440.
CRTs are awesome. Infinite bit depth and nice color gamut. Good contrast too.
Again, said capable of display. Never said anything about it being a good choice or won't have issues. Just simply capable.
.... ok, well, for one thing, "4K" is 3840x2160, or UHD. Editing 4K, or "true" 4K is 4096x2160.
2560x1440 is QHD.
1920x1080 is FHD or "2K".
1280x720 is HD.
VGA as a connection standard could not handle 2560x1440, let alone 3840x2160, and while CRTs do not have a "native" resolution, not being able to produce every pixel every frame independently would make them incapable of projecting the requested image.
CRTs also do not have infinite bit depth because their controllers and connection standards do not, regardless of what is theoretical.
