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 a new level of intensity to video cards.

 

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.

At 4K we can see the overclocked Sapphire R9 270X 2GB Vapor-X OC gets a nice little boost over the HIS version that equates to around 10%.

However, moving into a game, you can see that the average FPS is just way too low at this resolution.

While Hitman: Absolution sees a slight bump in FPS, you can see that the numbers are just way too low overall for the game to be playable.

Looking at Tomb Raider, the FPS are just way too low as the minimum moves into single digit territory.

GRID Autosport follows the same trend as our other 4K benchmarks here, with numbers that are just way too low.
