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.

While we don't have much to compare against the HIS R7 260X iCooler 2GB here, you can see the kind of performance increase the entry R9 card gets.

With Sleeping Dogs struggling at 2560 x 1600, it comes as no surprise that the FPS plummets when we move up to the intensive 4K resolution.

These unplayable results under Hitman: Absolution are no surprise at all, as we see so often that even our higher-end setups struggle at this intensive resolution.

Tomb Raider is super intensive, and the HIS R7 260X iCooler 2GB struggles at the lower resolutions. In this case, you can see our mid-range R7 260X 2GB plummets, with single digit numbers in both the minimum and average.

We finish our gaming testing with GRID Autosport at 4K, and just like the other 4K results, the overall performance is just too low as you'd expect. 4K is not an option for a card like this, which is something that should come as a surprise to no one.
