10 bit is useless with a W-LED illumination. For that price at least they should had RGB-LED backlighting...

Glad to see there is going to be some competition in the 4K market. Another 28" 4K, probably the same panel as the Lenovo, but a much higher price. And the marketing is very "workstation" "professional" but at an enthusiast price. I would therefore assume (since there are no PR shots with games or video), that the refresh rates are low, e.g. 30fps, or the grey-to-grey is slow.

I'm OK with 30fps/Hz for the 4K... SO LONG AS if you feed it a 1K signal (ie 1920x1080 input)), it can scale it and maintain 60fps+/Hz to deliver decent video and game play. The 4K can be for "productivity" applications, and the 1K for gaming.

30 fps is a serious too little of any serious multiplayer game. If we take into account FPS games at all. It is necessary to take into account that even for such a FPS need a very powerful multi-GPU support. And here is the biggest problem in the transmission of data to the monitor through the existing outputs on the GPU. Thunderbolt 2 would be able to perform the task. A conversion would only require a considerable backlog and synchronization technology is in its early stages. I want to have such a monitor, the price is currently too high no matter that decreases the lack of necessary support is a major problem because you can not connect these three monitors at the highest resolution and play the game smooth (60 FPS).

Dell's 28" 4K monitor was supposed to be about ~$1000. I think I am more interested in the Dell.

You will have a blurring mess on your eyes, trust me. On LCDs running any games in other resolution except native, will result in a huge disaster on the screen.

An integer multiple/divisor should be OK. Depends on how the TFT/internal scaling chipset has been designed.

Just so you all are aware, this monitor has 80hz Refresh rate @ 3840 x 2160.

It also has a 1ms G2G response time which is phenomenally good for something like this.

It needs DP 1.2a to do that resolution though.

Source is that I work for an Australian Distributor for Philips.

This monitor is 2K vertically and 4K Horizontally. This monitor is classed as 4K like all other 4K TV and displays it's not actually 4000p in any way.

This product is 4K and is the cheapest product to be announced as of yet, RRP in Australia is $999.

Cheers,

K is horzizonal, p is vertical.

Originally 4K is 4096 × 2160 17.1:9(1.9:1) for cinemas, 3840 × 2160 is 16:9(1.78:1) for consumers.

I have one. I bought it for Blender work, but also thought it would be ok for gaming since it was boasting gtg of 5ms.

Unfortuantely, it is worthless for serious gaming... What is never mentioned in the information is the > 100ms input lag. This makes it display with a delay of over 6 frames... It is nearly impossible to use for action games.

For work, yes, by all means.
For games? The input lag has completely nullified any benefit of response time.
For graphics? Only if you don't mind TN's inherent weaknesses.

Seem over priced to me comparing it to the Asus, but maybe some more details will provide a reason for the pricing.
