    Are they also working on their 4k support too? I tried multiple AMD cards and none of them worked for 4k. I wasn't using the highest end cards released but I don't have to with nvidia. I'm currently running a GTX 750 and it will do my 4k 30hz screens just fine, only uses 35 watts at low use/idle, and has 4 display connections.

    It will be very interesting to see what AMD actually does to stay in the competition.

    There is rumored to be 4k support.

    AMD and Nvidia GPUs have supported 4K for many years now.

    Oh the horror!
    I'm actually very interested to see what AMD brings to the table. nVidia has been getting a bit greedy lately. It's always nice to have options, considering that GTX 960 didn't exceed my expectations...

    They work excellent for me. I only use the 4k for looking at blue prints. When they are designed to be printed out on 36 x 48 inch paper then the 4k comes in handy. Lets also consider that paying a shop to print out a set for a large commercial building can cost upwards of $400. I only paid $250 for the 4k screen which can be used many many times.

    30Hz mouse cursor movement teleportation makes me nervous.

    For static images though, sure, that's a very cost-efficient way.


    I remember using two 1080p screens with one overview and one panning showing the same desktop at 4K or so when I couldn't afford high-res screens. Would be so much better if such low cost 4K systems existed back then.

    Both Nvidia and AMD support 4K 60Hz, but only over displayport 1.2, and only with a monitor that supports displayport 1.2. If you're going over HDMI you're stuck with 30Hz no matter what card you use.
