4k vs 2k; (for 2070 super)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, is there a major difference gaming in 2k vs 4k on a 27 inch monitor?

 

I plan to buy a monitor but am wondering which one is best? Should I not waste the extra money on a 4k monitor?

 

Graphics Card: 2070 super

CPU: 3700x

You could get away with some games at 2k 120+hz, which  is going to be a better gaming experience than 4k @ 60

 

If you were wanting to do anything productivity wise then 4k would be the way to go

2k is plenty sharp for 27" Monitors.

With 4K you wouldnt really be noticing much of a difference but the Performance would tank.

The 2070 Super will struggle very hard to hit even 60 fps in most AAA games at 4K.

Go for 1440p 144Hz. You will gain much more from the higher refresh rate.

I hate how people call 1440p 2k.

There is no part of that resolution that relates to 2k.

It kind of does. 2560x1440, you could say the 2560 is 2k pixels across.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

2.5k or QHD

 

1920x1080 is closer to 2k than 2560x1440

 

Also 5k = 4xQHD so 2.5k+2.5k=5k horizontally 

 

Anyways, 2k is 2048pixels horizontally

Hey man, thanks for the response :). Do you think my 2070 super could support a 144 hz 2560x1440 monitor?

2070 Super is perfect for 1440p. You will not max out the display in every game (Not even the RTX 2080 TI will in fact) but in every game where it actually matters.

Depends on the game. With a 1070 I get higher than that on csgo type games with max settings but around 80 on r6 and ghost recon.

It really doesn't...

2.5k, maybe. 1920 is a hell of a lot closer to 2k than 2560.
