>>52658429 From experience. Pixeld at 4k are so small you need to scale UI up, and especially on Windows there's plenty of programs and elements that scale badly or not at all. This is the fault of desktop OSes, but it's a thing
I also had problems with nvidia drivers early on, couldn't get 60fps
ive just about had it with /g/ what the fuck is wrong with you 1080p 24" is almost the same ppi as 1995 era computers Are you some kind of broke loser that tries to justify you being a poor loser stuck with old shit
Any technology that isn't mainstream is shit on by /g/ because most people here are students and NEETs who, despite having a passion for technology, can't actually afford anything new.
It's a sour grapes situation, but it's particularly strange because people come to a board dedicated to technology and then act like luddites who hate anything modern that's out of their price range. Obviously anyone with half a brain would realize that 4K has significant benefits, especially in desktop space where people are using 1080p monitors with insanely low DPI still, but shitting on something because you can't afford it lets people feel more comfortable about what they have.
Back in 2007 you could get a 1080p TV. The PS3 rarely played games over 720p, DVD's were still selling well more than Blu-Ray, HD broadcasts over 720p didn't exist and even then a lot of content was being upscaled from SD. In 2016 you can get a 4K TV. The PS4 rarely plays games over 720p, Blu-Rays are disappearing due to popularity of comparatively low quality internet streaming and HD broadcasts over 720p are still rare.
Why should a normie care about higher resolution when there's no high res content for them? They don't get it because they have no use for it, therefore it's all meme tech to them.
>>52661882 It was the coolest shit when it was first released. Local news stations were at their local Best Buys showing them off. Then nothing. The technology was dead in the water all because the fucking television studios didn't make any content. I've still got the 3D copy of Monsters Vs Aliens that came with my tv. Makes me mad tbqh.
3D for cinema is 100% meme. Hell, 3D TVs, even for games, are 100% meme. 3D only works in devices like VR headsets where you get as close as possible to an actual 3D image by displaying a single image for each eye.
Bonus is that any 3D (in the sense of using polygons instead of sprites) game works with a 3D display by tweaking the render a bit. It's the same reason 3D (again, polygon-based) games work flawlessly on 4K and higher displays by just increasing the render resolution.
Movies and such need to actually be created for 3D or with a high resolution from the get go. You can't retroactively increase the detail or dimensions like with games.
>>52661890 >streaming >getting anything greater than 480p in America
We have only the Jewish ISPs and telecarriers to blame. Fuckers just pocket money rather than put into upgrading the infrastructure to match other nations. It's fucking sad that the United States, the country that pretty much created everything for the internet, has 3rd world internet speeds.
