One of the most anticipated technologies of this year – 4K Ultra HD technology, is the next-gen of PC and it’s seriously hot stuff. The Windows blog got their hands on a 55-inch 4K-capable Ultra HD TV and ran some DirectX 11 games on it.
They tried Max Payne 3 with an AMD Radeon HD 7970 and saw some great details from the game. The one thing to remember here is the insane amount of pixels being pushed from the 4K Ultra HD TV set. The standard now, 1920×1080, pushes 2.07 megapixels – but 4K? An insane 8.2 megapixels… a huge, huge jump. That jump requires some serious GPU horsepower.
