4K - 3840 x 2160 Testing

 

 

4K monitors are the next step for gamers demanding the best in image quality. With 4x the pixels of a standard 1920 x 1080 monitor (meaning 4x the intensity); 3840 x 2160 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.

With few results under our 4K tests, it's a little hard to tell just how well the HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB performs against other mid-range cards at this intensive resolution.

Cranking up the resolution sees the HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB plummet here. Even the R9 290 4GB falls short of 60 FPS.

Across the board, we see Hitman Absolution just wreck our single GPU solutions with unplayable FPS at this resolution.

Tomb Raider sees FPS in the single digits here. We must admit it has been a while since we've seen a test put this kind of hurt on a video card.

Finishing up with GRID Autosport, we continue to find ourselves not surprised the mid-range HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB struggles at this intense resolution.
