Is 4k an important factor for buying or renting a monitor? We’ll try and answer these questions, and what you may want to know if you plan on using your new 4k monitor for games.
4k vs 1080p & 1440p: Which Resolution Will Really Work for You?
4k monitors are now on the market that will have an actual resolution of at least 4K. This means that for all intents and purposes they are just as good of a resolution as 1080p. However, they do have one drawback: they are expensive.

Also, even when gaming with a 4k display, your experience may be very different depending on what aspect ratio your monitor is set to.
4k vs 1080p vs 1440p (4:3 & 16:9): Which One Will Give You the Best Response Time?
4k monitors are also known as HDR or high dynamic range (HDR). While not being HDR, 4k sets you up for the benefits of HDR. It allows you to enjoy HDR images at the very finest level, by combining the most accurate colors, and the most dynamic contrast ratio possible. This is achieved through combining the pixels of the different displays, so this means that you get the highest resolution possible even when using all of your components at the same time. This means that even though you may have a
