4K and Gaming: Two Monitors - Fight!
« on: November 23, 2014, 05:28:41 PM »
If you are getting excited about 4K gaming and what that will look like, you'll need a great system with graphics that are better than a R9 270X - I'd say R9 280X at the minimum as well as a decent 4K display. There are a few options and getting to be more and more all the time. A couple of the affordable contenders are put head-to-head and now that these start at $700, it's pretty hard to pass up one of these for your next major monitor purchase.

   Of the two, the 4K U2868PQU came closer to what I would need out of an everyday monitor, though it's certainly not perfect. On the downside, AOC managed to hit such a low price point for a 28-inch 4K monitor in part by going with a cheaper TN panel, rather than IPS. As such, viewing angles and color accuracy took a hit, and editing photos got a bit frustrating. Such drawbacks are easier to forgive on a gaming-centric display like the G2460PG, but less so on a more "professional" monitor.Source: Engadget
