[quotemsg=11076757,0,686747][quotemsg=11076704,0,269694]if i get a 4k anything, it MUST be at least 48 inches, or else i have to scale the ui and i lose all benefit a 4k would offer me. [/quotemsg]
It's unfortunate that this is what it is. I can see the 39" working well for ASUS in professional space, but the 31.5" is really only useful for gamers, where the "size shrink" due to 4K would mean little in a game. but at $3.5k, few would buy it to just play games[/quotemsg]
actually, for gaming, a 30 inch would be bad too. think if it, how many games properly scale ui? even than, how much processing power is necessary to run a 4k resolution without degradation in detail? sure you could run 1080p window but even then, it would be like playing it on a 15 inch screen. full screen, you would need 4 high end gpus, 2 dual gpu cards, or dual titans, just to manage a barely acceptable frame rate.
yea, in maybe 4 years this will be consolidated to a single gpu, but we are looking at the now.
with a 48 inch screen, i would have productivity, the equivalent of 4 1080p monitors (in productivity terms, 4k is reasonable, 250-400$ a monitor, opposed to one monitor at 1000$ (google it, you can find 4k for 1k) it is reasonable, and for gameing, i can go 1080p and use the equivalent of a 24 inch screen space. granted i would want at least 60hz, but thats another story.
main point is, even for gamers, 4k isn't really good, you could just use 8-16X AA and save a crap ton of money,
