      This. 4k is a meme if your screen isn't a TV, less than 30cm from your face or anything smaller than 27in.

      1440p is only worthwhile if you have a large screen but your screen is still close to you.

      4k is fine for tvs.

        Isn't it the other way around? The greater the distance, the less resolution and fine details matter. You wouldn't notice aliasing jaggies on a TV across the room that much, but you do notice them very obviously on a monitor on your desk. That's why higher resolution makes more sense on a monitor in front of your face than a TV on the other side of the room.

        The other argument is the content. Next to no content exists in 4k for TVs, but video games are rendered live for your specific resolution.

        It's like marketing for high res TVs has fucked up people's ability to analyze such things.

    Not at all. You'll notice a bigger difference going from 1080 to 2k as opposed to going from 2k to 4k.
    If your screen isn't at least ~30 inches 4k is a complete meme and waste of resources.

              Because we are trained to recognize the vertical resolution of 1080p, 2K sounds like a bigger leap than 1440p. Same reason why 4K was marketed over 2160p.

              At least 4K is actually somewhat accurate.

    A proper 4k IPS monitor has great clarity that makes 1440p seem blurry.

    its the nextgen 720p jump from 480p. The same way 720 folk said they couldnt tell 720 to 1080, we're getting repeats of "and honestly 4k doesnt seem that great to me". I know people IRL who give me "the human eye speech, but now its 60fps". Its great fortune that the human eye can only see specifically what the monitors of today or yesterday can manufacture. Its also pretty lucky that human eyesight evolves at the speed of affordable television or monitor resolutions available in their market. Im not even sure if 240hz is enough yet because Ive yet to see 8k 120 or 240hz 4k or 360hz 1080p. Only once in my life have I seen above 60hz on a monitor and I couldnt exactly document every moment without asking for a framecounter. For now I know OLED cannot fix burn-in, only slow it, and I know 4k is 4x above 1080p and I can tell the second I need more FPS in 4k gaming.

    Put simply, if you do 1440p, eventually you'll be doing 4k when everyone decides the human eye can affor- can see see up to 4k 120hz monitors. My human wallet can only see a 400 dollar display that doesnt step down from 4k to give me more frames. No more concessions for individual gimmicks, full technological convergence until I grow 2 more brains and two more sets of eyes.

    I like 1440p better since it doesnt push your gpu that hard. Playing pretty games maxed out at 144fps and up whilst your gpu is dead silent is really nice.
    I am on a 7900xtx so if I want 4k I can hook it up to my oled, but for desk use 1440p is good enough.

    If you truly need a monitor right now and you have anything less than a 4090 you should probably go for 1440p/144hz+ monitor. Even if you had a 4090 you'll probably be paying another $600-$1000 for a 4k monitor which properly matches its performance.

    If you can wait another GPU generation or two, 4k will likely have started becoming the standard and it's going to stay that way for a long time because of the amount of content designed specifically around 4k. The exception is if you're doing """esports""" , in which case you'll probably still want 1440p or even 1080p at 240hz+ for an extra few years.

    Basically, despite being optimal right this moment, 1440p is going to be in an awkward position in a year or two and if you're a richfag with deep pockets this generation is the first time going to 4k/144hz makes sense.

    4k is a massive gamechanger, assuming you understand the base concept of computing and stick to God's chosen PPI. 1440p was alright a decade ago if you needed something a little bigger than 1080p, but at this point it's a complete joke and the money you spend on a 1440p screen would be better spent on 4k.

    1440p 144hz on a 27' display is the sweet spot for gaming imo. It's a tangible upgrade over 1080p without being taxing like 4K. There's nothing wrong with 1080p either, especially on smaller displays. Pixel density is more important the resolution and the size of your display should be the determining factor for what resolution you choose. This is why there's so much debate on whether higher resolutions even make a difference or not. The retard on the 24" is going to think 1080p looks crisp and there's no need to upgrade, he's right. 1080p on a 24" looks fine due to the high pixel density. But the other retard on the 27" display will notice how crusty 1080p is and will definitely notice the jump to 1440p. And then they argue about it because they're both retards.

    Just follow this:

    >under 27": 1080p
    >over 27": 1440p
    >32" or bigger: 4k.

    Not upgrading from 1080p until 4k and that shit is ridiculously expensive right now so I'm in no rush

    straight to 4k if you can afford it. aside from the objectively better picture, it'll last longer and 4k displays also downscale to 1080p better for when you want to pretend you're an e-sports player and need 144fps.

    The only way you're getting 4k/144hz is if you have a 4090.

      If you stop playing garbage, you can easily get 4k/144hz out of decade old hardware.

    >want to go 4k but I play FPS
    >could get a 1080p 240hz and a 4k monitor but I heard it syncs the refresh rate to your lowest hz monitor
    Is it true?

    These are just resolutions. Just pick what you want.
    The only time it becomes a meme is when you pick something that isn't supported by a lot of games like that time period where a bunch of gays had to constantly ask for UWHD support.

    They finally have 40-42 inch 4k monitors. I want real estate with reasonable pixel density.

    4K is the meme. 1440p is good enough for anything smaller than 28"

    27 inches 1440p is literally the perfect monitor. You don't need more.

    4k is for televisions.

      Constantly, while using my dual 24" 1080p setup, would I have issues where I needed more vertical space, more horizontal space, or had to deal with content that flip flopped between them in a way that didn't allow me to just swap screens every 2 seconds.

      4k totally replaced my existing setup. I still have the extra monitors, I don't even have them plugged in because they're superfluous and far too small. 27" would've been a slight upgrade that solved none of my problems and still required me to buy 2 screens, 43" was the only option.

    I still playing everything to 1080.
    4k (UHD) is 3840 x 2160 in 16:9, or a 8,294,40 pixels. Over 4x 1080p.
    I cant imagine if people have a giant screen for see the same garbage

    How are the old games on 1440p? Do widescreen patches work for them in the same way like for 1080p?

    • 1 week ago
      Anonymous

      I played a lot of old games totally fine in QHD and all of them looked gorgeous, like Need for Speed Underground 1 with the widescreen patch, Unreal Tournament 99, UT 2004. It's easy to run in 1080P without it being an eyesore too.
