MMORPG.com will be down for maintenance beginning at midnight EST on Wednesday, August 31. Downtime is expected to last only a couple of hours.

For the people who think 4K resolution is a good thing for gaming, etc...

I literally can't stop chuckling at this.

So, Metro 2033 at max settings, 3840x2160 resolution required 4, count it, 4 Titans in order to breach 60fps.

What is a very respectable single card, still a $280 card mind you, the 660ti, did 5.7 FPS.

 

Yeah, methinks 4k gaming wont be realistically happening for at least 5 more years.

    I could tell you that the moment they introduced the ultra tv screens with 4k resolution.

    It's like "retina screens". Do I see a difference between retina and plasma/led/lcd? Sure. Big enough difference to be worth the expense? Nope.

    It would be a good thing for gaming if it worked. That being said, I haven't seen anyone actually claim they'll start playing in 4K anytime soon.

    My Tianhe-2 supercomputer is the fastest in the world at 33.86 petaflops. Can run 4k easly:P

    I think 1440p is good enough for gaming for now.
