[quotemsg=16331722,0,1330141]Yet 28 inches is too small for 4k. People blabbing about 144hz this and that. Not everyone wants to play games that look like soap operas. Some of us prefer larger higher res displays. I'm currently looking at 40-43 inches at 4K with 2 980 kinpins to push it. I could give a rip about 144hz, those displays are just too small.[/quotemsg]
1. There's no such thing as a 4k 144 Hz display....
2. I am not aware of a single 4k monitor > 32"
3. A total of 7 people in 10,000 game at 4k (0.07)%
[quotemsg=16333163,0,388413]TN panel is a problem as i see it. Its 60hz so why not at least a VA panel? I recently went from a TN panel to a VA panel and would never go back to TN. And to those saying 4k is too much, or requires expensive graphics cards are a bit wrong. Benchmarks at 4k are often tested at Ultra detail presets, which arent necessary at 4k, especially not AA. And if a game doesnt work well at 4k, who cares, it scales perfectly at 1080p, so you just run the game at 1080.[/quotemsg]
Generalizations about panel types can not be made w/o considering which panel and what's in the monitor besides the panel. The Acer Predator is an IPS panel that is gorgeous in gaming but w/o G-Sync, ULMB and 144 Hz, it would not be the same monitor..... When we say IPS, the IPS panel in the Predator is a far cry from the ghost heavy $300-ish panels. Because the Predator is great, doesn't make every IPS monitor great.
And when we say TN for example, are we talking the 6 bit color found in most TN panels of the 8 bit in the Asus Swift ?
As for using a 4k monitor at 1080p..... if you're gonna be playing at 1080p, why not just get 1080p ? Kind alike buying a Ferrari to commute to the city from the suburbs.
