These are starting to look really interesting, but gaming at this resolution is not very economically viable for a lot of people. And, like I always say, multimedia content is still like 99% at 1080p (movies, tv shows, Youtube, etc.). The good thing is that with 4K moniutors pixels are so small that it should look amazing.

Forget gaming. 4k resolutions are a boon for working with spreadsheets, charting software, writing projects, research and the like. I'd drop a few hundred on one right now if I could justify it.

I think 4k will just make it easier to see the limitations in modern graphics. View distance and seeing edges is still a huge one. There really isn't any benefit to 4k gaming because there isn't anything to see. Hell view distance is still a problem at 1080p. Move through an area and you will notice that items and foliage will come in to view as you move closer.

They wouldn't bother changing/fixing it if no-one could see it. This is helping the transition to better graphics.
