  1. At Computex 2014 Asus launched an extended range of consumer products, including the impressive Transformer Book T300 Chi, which I looked at earlier this week. For the gamers out there though, Asus launched a few new gaming products at Computex...

    I wonder if it can display the RRP without frame stutters and without blue screening...

    That's right. It's a pointless resolution to have in a *ROG* laptop with a piddly GTX 860M. I even have my doubts that two GTX 880Ms would perform adequately with UHD..

    I have to admit, an 860m is a little weak for 4K.

    Looks pretty decent despite the GPU. For desktop/2D, it would be very nice.

    A 4K display on a laptop is absurd anyway. Probably have to look for differences from 1080P with a magnifying glass.

    1080p is great on a 5.5" display. Why would 4k be absurd on a 15" screen?

    That's absurd as well. 1080P is not even needed on a 20", I know I'm looking at one now, with only 1600x900 resolution. 4K is not needed for portables, unless you consider a 40"+ TV a portable.

    Agreed.
    720p is all you need for a 4-5" phone, I used an LG G2 (badass phone btw) the other day and the 1080p was WAY overkill. There was no difference other then PPI crunching. Sure looked good on paper though.
