4K – 3840 x 2160 Testing

 

 

4K monitors are the next step for gamers demanding the best in image quality. With four times the pixels of a standard 1920x1080 monitor (meaning four times the intensity), 3840x2160 brings with it a new level of intensity to video cards.

 

Wanting to make sure that you're buying the right video card for a monitor that offers such a large resolution, we test the latest and greatest video cards in a couple of benchmarks to give you an idea of just what kind of setup you require.

Looking at our 4K testing, you can see that the ASUS GTX 780 6GB STRIX OC manages to come out ahead of the HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2. Our results continue to be limited here, though, so we don't know how it compares to AMD's higher-end R9 290X 4GB.

Cranking the resolution right up, you can see that the ASUS GTX 780 6GB STRIX OC manages to still sneak past that 60 FPS mark with a 64 FPS average.

While the minimum under Hitman Absolution doesn't look too bad, you can see the average is just too low for the game to be playable.

Tomb Raiders sees both an average and minimum that is too low here. There's no denying that the 4K resolution puts some serious stress on our video card.
