What 4K 30Hz Monitor?

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I am considering to buy a 4K 30Hz capable monitor to my PC. 

 

The size i want is about 24'.

 

I see the Dell P2415Q or the BenQ BL2420U as two options. The BenQ is 30Hz capable but don't know if the Dell is. 

 

Another models? 

 

Is the response time important? I don't see movies in the PC, only normal use and P3D/XP. BenQ is 7 ms and Dell is 8ms.

 

Also see the AOC U2477PWQ. I think is 30Hz capable. 

 

Is HDMI needed to run at 30Hz?

4k Monitors come in two types. TN and IPS displays. Generally TN displays are capable of very quick responses like 1ms, whereas IPS displays tend to be a bit slower like 4ms. If you use HDMI connection your display will always be 60Hz, however if the monitor has a display port and you use the correct cable you will get the full benefit of 4K resolution. IPS panels although slower tend to produce the best images.

Thanks!

 

But the main question is...They will run at 30Hz? How? What cable?

Not sure you'll see the full benefit of 4k on a 24" monitor.  I would ask around to see if others that upgraded from 24" HD to 24" 4K thought it was worth it.  For a bit more you can get a 43".  I have Vizio M series 43" that runs at 30 or 60 Hz.  Works great for daily use and P3D.

My Pc is in a normal desk table, i think more than 27 will be too much for the distance i look at monitor.

Just saw the AOC U2879VF 28". Very good price for 28".

 

What do you think?

For information on DisplayPort see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DisplayPort

 

There are various versions and you need to have one for your chosen monitor. Be aware that some manufacturers do not include them with the monitor and therefore needs to be bought separately.

If budget is not tight it is worth considering an IPS panel that incorporates G-sync (for Nvidia cards) or FreeSync (for AMD cards).

Thanks again.

 

My actual monitor is a Gsync monitor, but it does not provide a smooth and stutter free experience in P3D.

have you tried a custom resolution within the nvidia panel for 30hz on your current monitor?

 

ps. superwide beats 4k in my humble opinion.

I would recommend a Samsung 40in TV UN40KU6300 it will run natively at 30Hz and I love it

For those that can't do 30Hz via DisplayPort try with an HDMI cable. It worked for me. I was able to go into Nvidia control panel and changed it to 30 Hz.

Ahh my monitor don't have Hdmi input. Only DP.

 

 

 Gsync only works with DP, and also only works at 30 fps and higher. So if you are searching for 4k which is either double or quadruple the res of your current setup but not being able to maintain 30 fps at your current resolution I don't think is going to get you anywhere.

Just set your resolution to 30 hz, which will work fine in DP or HDMI.

Why would you get a tiny 24" 4K monitor? Makes no sense. Plus the text and menu will be so small it will be hard to read! 4K is awesome but not on a tiny monitor

Unfortunately on my Dell U3415W using DP only gives me 50Hz or 60 Hz but not 30 Hz.

Via HDMI it gives the option for 30 Hz. I wonder why is this.

My 40" Samsung is less than 3 feet from my eyes when simming and I have no problems at all. I sit even closer when typing something up like I am now. The TV is just over arms length away from me.

Thanks you. I will consider 27? 32? 40 is too big for me.

 

My monitor don't have 30Hz option via DP and it don't have HDMI.

 

The principal reason for a 4K monitor in 24 is the 30Hz option.

I think i will stay with my actual monitor for a few months more... 

 

Actually i have a stutter free experience with 60Hz, 30.5 FPS limit in NI, Vsync 1/2 and 31FPS limit in P3D. This is the smoothest experience i had in P3D, it remembers me the 1/2 FSX old times.

 

My monitor is 144Hz Gsync compatible, but i can't get smooth experience using Gsync even with 50-60 average FPS...It always causes some microstuttering...

 

Will consider a 4K 27 monitor in a few months...
