So, I was completely wrong about 4K

Forums - Gaming Discussion - So, I was completely wrong about 4K

I have been extremely skeptical about the industry´s transition to 4K from the start and felt that it was overhyped and not as visible a change as people claimed.

Well, I was utterly and completely wrong on every front. I actually told myself a week ago that I would buy an Xbox One X and a 4K TV since I needed a new TV anyway.

I have now used my computer, played games and watched movies on my 49" Phlips 6482 with my computer and Xbox One X for a couple of days and can only say.... wow.  The pixel density and sharpness of the image is visible right away and it is the first time since I got a 360 back in 2007 that I have felt amazed by the image quality.

And HDR is as impressive as the new resolution. Old games like Ninja Gaiden Black feel like remastered games now, thay look so amazing? And HDR makes every image become more vivid and vibrant.

Any more people that have made the complete jump? Experiences?

Seen 4k on a 50inch TV.

It's alright.

I still haven't had a proper look at 4K TVs myself, and well, I can't afford a good one at the moment, so maybe ignorance is bliss!



You can easily spot the different, that's not the problem though. It's just that the difference isn't as wow-ing like the standard resolution to HD did. We'll probably never reach that point too.

Can't really fit a bigger TV in the room than my current 42", so it's not something that interests me for the foreseeable future.
I'm more interested in HDR than 4K though.

It’s impressive if you see it side by side with a 1080p screen, but as far as gaming goes, it’s not the end all be all. At least not yet.

Yes, HDR was in many ways a bigger surprise than 4K. I didn´t buy the best HDR TV out there (but it is HDR10) and it´s stark difference compared to a  regular TV.

Sadly, both things seem to go hand in hand as far as TV/Monitor manufacturers go .

 

OT: Good for you. I won't make the jump to 4K anytime soon, mostly because there's little content at that resolution and I'd need a much more powerful GPU to game on a monitor with such res., but it's good to know that the upgrade is noticeable.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

I'll get one eventually, there's no denying it is a noticable upgrade. I just want to buy a decent 4k tv not one of those cheap Vizio or Roku tvs. But that's my budget range sadly.
