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.

Moving into our 4K resolution benchmarks, and starting off with 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra, you can see that while both setups perform quite close to each other, the AMD R9 290X 4GB does manage to sneak out slightly ahead.

Looking at our second synthetic 4K benchmark, you can again see that while the two setups are very close to each other, the R9 290X 4GB does manage to sneak out slightly ahead of the ASUS GTX 970 4GB STRIX OC.

Looking at Shadow of Mordor, you can see that the R9 290X 4GB manages to have a strong performance gain over the ASUS GTX 970 4GB STRIX OC again. However, with that said, you can see the performance of both setups at this resolution is just way too low. You really do need a dual video card setup to get playable FPS here.
