The traditional batch of reference cards. Boring. It will get more interesting later when more custom designs arrive...

But isn't 4k 4096*2304, and QFHD 3840*2160?

Edit: Apparently they ditched the logical 16:9 (at not even for the movie based 21:9) used on Youtube's max rez of 4k, and decided to widen QFHD ...
