Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Considering going from a 27" 2560x1440 to a 32" 4K monitor - thoughts/observations?
I have been using a 27" 2560x1440 as the primary monitor ever since Dell made it available, but more wants more and I am considering moving to a 32" 4K monitor (likely also from Dell, but the jury is still out).
32" to 27" size comparison(Credits to Display Wars):
And the hard numbers (Credits to Sven Neuhaus for his PPI calculator):
Display size: 23.53" × 13.24" = 311.5in² (59.77cm × 33.62cm = 2009.68cm²) at 108.79 PPI, 0.2335mm dot pitch, 11834 PPI² 32"
Display size: 27.89" × 15.69" = 437.55in² (70.84cm × 39.85cm = 2822.93cm²) at 137.68 PPI, 0.1845mm dot pitch, 18956 PPI²
Holding off taking the plunge until a model comes out that comes with HDMI 2.0 and/or a DisplayPort version where one doesn't have to have the display pretend to be displays in one frame might be the smart thing to do in the long run, but my main thing is really that I'd love to hear if anyone has some experience to share on going from a 27" 2560x1440 to a 32" 4K monitor?
I'm using my PC for anything from reading the PA comic to spreadsheets, programming and of course gaming ( I can not wait for the next Unreal Tournament installment) and if possible I may also hook up my PS3 and 360 to the thing just as I have with the 27" right now. It does seem the 4K monitors out there does not exactly have the fastest response rate so I am somewhat concerned about that, even more so on the 1080p sources as the one review I saw mentioning running a 4K monitor in 1080p described that the response time got pretty bad when the monitor had to rescale!
Still, pretending the possible hardware issues are insignificant and letting the lure of new hardware take over. What are your thoughts on taking the plunge?
