Difference between 4K resolution and 4K textures

So I recently got a 4K OLED and paired it with my r9 290. Suffice it to say, the card can't handle 4K well. I was playing Ace Combat 7 and though game looks good, I had to turn the resolution down to 1440p on my 4K tv and I didn't notice much of a difference between it and 4K. not texure wise anyways. The only thing I noticed was my rivertuner fps stuff being bigger instead of being smaller and finer as it would under 4K. I thought I'd have more screen real estate as well with 4K as opposed to 4K like you do on Windows but no, the FOV remained the same

Today I fire up Gears of War Ultimate and notice the same pattern except Gears of War Ultimate actually has a texture slider. with 4K, the game is barely playable on Ultra texture (4G ram) and ever less on 4K texture (6GB). What I ended up doing was go down to 1440p and select 4K textures. Game looks just as good, maybe a little less pop as it would have on 4k resolution plus 4k textures

Is this really it? Thats how 4k gaming was. It appears to me that 4K resolution means nothing if the game doesn't have 4K textures. I took some pics but was too lazy to upload them lol
