4k(2160) vs qhd(1440) Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all. Can't find the answer anywhere on the web..lol

I'm an electrical estimator who does on screen takes off's with my estimating program. I import strickly B&W pdf drawings(36"x48" drawings). I'm getting a 32" monitor. Obviously I'd like to be able to see entire drawing CLEARLY on screen without having to zoom in but i'd need 8k 50"..lol

So will a 4k monitor provide much clearer lines, symbol details than QHD at the same magnifications(zoom) than the QHD. Would I be able to see more of the drawing clearer with 4k or QHD. Hope I make sense in my question. Thank you VERY much for any feeddback.

I had a 32" 1440p(144hz) monitor beside my 32" 4k(60hz) for a while and did not like it at all.

For non gaming it was too fuzzy(low res).

 

It doesn't take many more pixels not to look fuzzy since my 3840 X 1600 ultrawide does it.

 

For years I prepared images for large format printing. All the errors that got past me where because I did not zoom in enough. If I started doing it again I would only use 4k monitors.

Yes. Because with a 4K monitor you're getting a lot more pixel than QHD monitor. 

 

A friend of mine is a graphic desginer, and he is planning to upgrade to a 4K monitor soon. 4K monitor gives a cleaner image after zooming, which can be useful in your case.

Thanks a lot guys. Next question. Just bought a business Lenovo 2in1 laptop. It has Intel UHD 620 graphics card. Will that support 4K?  Hope so. Can't return laptop so if it won't support the 4k resolution monitor guess I'll have to go with QHD.

 

Sorry guys looks like it is. Questions seems to be the cable i use to connect as the HDMI is limited to 1.4. have to check my laptop config for the ports. I have Lenovo X1 yoga gen 4
