When 4K is the Standard for PC, is there Any Reason to Go Higher with Res..?

Will there be any reason to advance in resolution beyond the point that you cannot see the pixels?

I'd like to hear your thoughts.
I think the perfect 4K monitor/TV will be one that is OLED, 120Hz, 5ms response time, around 30" screen size, 16:9, and all for under $1,000.

it's already been decided 4k is best at 31.5" size.

and I doubt we ever go above 4k, as most cable companiess dont even stream in 1080p only in 1080i... if they ever catch up...

The perfect TV is 30"?

Negative. 60" or more!

If we're talking for use as a computer monitor, 30" might be a little large, but I'd have to use it to see. I know I'd be okay with 27", as I've used those, but I have to have room for two displays. I'd take a 1080p monitor and an old 4:3 LCD display over a single 4k display. I mean, we're assuming I'm not allowed to sell said 4k monitor and purchase two lesser displays :P

As for resolution, I had the same discussion this evening with one of my co-workers. He wondered when enough was enough. I honestly don't know. Every time I've seen a better (as in higher res) display, I can see the difference.

If I can tell the difference in the display when upgrading from a 1280x720 display to a 1920x1080 on a cell phone, I'm fairly certain we're not there yet with desktop monitors/TVs.

I don't see any need for 2160p (sorry I hate the marketing term '4K') at the 27-30 inch size. 1440p already has a pixel density so high I really doubt you'd be able to tell the difference in a double-blind test. There are diminishing returns as you go up.

Also, keep in mind that for that very slight increase (if you can see an increase at all) you will be asking your video card to push 8.29 million pixels @2160p rather than 3.68 million @ 1440p. That's almost 3 times the load on your GPU. More if you are only at 1080p.

That being said, for 60+ inch screens, it will look nice.

Are you implying that the perfect screen for the pinnacle of PC gaming would be a TV?

Personally, I don't like TV's. I like monitor more as they are lighter, thinner, outperform TV's, and look better.

4k for gaming or PC in general? I'd probably take a 4k display for general use of a computer, 8k, 16k, 32k . . . .

We will when the average consumer can afford a 4k display.
