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.

Cranking up the resolution to a massive 3840 x 2160, you can see that the GTX 980 4GB in this case falls a little behind the heavily overclocked R9 290X 3GB here. It will be interesting to see how performance on the GTX 980 4GB is when we throw overclocking into the mix.

Sleeping Dogs, on the other hand, sees the GTX 980 4GB sneak ahead of the heavily overclocked R9 290X 4GB.

Hitman Absolution sees the GTX 980 4GB fall a little behind here and come in between the R9 290 4GB and heavily overclocked R9 290X 4GB.

Tomb Raider performance sees similar results as to what we saw under Hitman Absolution. While the GTX 980 4GB does fall back slightly, you can see across the board, the FPS aren't where we need to be on any of our setups here.

Finishing off with GRID Autosport, you can see that both the GTX 980 4GB and heavily overclocked R9 290X 4GB perform quite closely to each other. Again, though, you can see the FPS aren't where they need to be on both setups.
