Pricing and availability are unknown

Dell has tipped some of the details on a new 24” UHD computer monitor called the UP2414Q.
Dell says that the UP2414Q features the highest pixel density of any of its available displays at 185 ppi. The native resolution of the IPS display is 3840 x 2160 and it offers viewing angles of 178-degrees horizontally and vertically. The contrast ratio is listed as 1000:1 typical and 2M:1 dynamic. Brightness for the panel is 350 cd/m2 and the panel has a 8ms response time.

The display supports 99% Adobe RGB color gamut and 100% sRGB.
Unfortunately, important details like pricing and availability haven’t been announced at this time.

Just curious, does anyone know how 1080p looks on a 4k display? It should amount to pixel doubling, and perhaps 1080p scaled up to 4k doesn't look so bad?

Thinking of a 4k display but my SLI setup isn't going to drive 4K at max settings, so I may keep gaming at 1080P while using the display as a stepping stone to 4K. Plus, I can still do 2D at 4K in theory.

Any thoughts?

Ive been using a 2048x1152 resolution screen for years now and have on occasion had to run old win95/98 games in 1/4 resolution (1024x576) because they don't support 16:9 resolutions that high. They all look perfectly sharp, with no visual artifacts. (unlike for example 1280x720 or 1024x768)

I imagine 1080 on this new screen will look just as sharp as 1080 displayed natively on a screen the same size, perhaps even a bit sharper since the gap between pixels should be smaller.

Yeah this is the problem with 4K, its going to require some insane graphics card power.

Benchmarks show that even SLI of the highest end cards (290X and 780Ti) is still struggling to achieve 4K on high settings. You will definitely have to run many games at 1080p until video cards catch up. Old games shouldn't be too hard, though.
