Wish reviewers would start benching at 3840x2160 already... not that I trust most of them... or that I'll be gaming at that resolution anytime soon... but it would be a great catalyst to kick-start the move to it... as in, for more than just ultra-underground gaming/enthusiasts with more money than sense... or just well informed folks like me. :D

Current displays only run 30 Hz = 30 FPS. Not usable for anything serious.

But yes, I'd like to start benching 4K, too, just need $$ to buy a monitor. and with current pricing and the knowledge that it will have to be replaced when HDMI 2.0 comes out I rather party away that money.

Well, I see AMD are touting the 7990 as a 3840x2160 capable card

...although their definition of "run" seems pretty loose:

The Tomb Raider @ the same res, also deserves the :rolleyes:

"It can run" for me means that the game map will load and be displayed on the screen. Even if it's 1 frame per day or 1 frame per second...
