OF THE MONITORS YOU’VE SOLD RECENTLY, HOW MANY ARE 4K OR HIGHER? DO YOU THINK NVIDIA’S NEXT GRAPHICS CARD LINE-UP WILL HASTEN THE UPTAKE OF 4K MONITORS?
JOHN, TI COMPUTERS:
“4K UHD monitors only contribute roughly 5% of our sale out primarily due to the lack of GPU processing power from one single GPU.
AAA adventure and role-playing games are where ultrahigh definition gets appreciated the most. Unfortunately, there has not been one GPU that has the ability to drive AAA adventure and RPG titles at max settings consistently over 60FPS under UHD. If Nvidia’s next gen GPUs do have the ability to drive these titles at consistent 60FPS+ under either high or max settings, I am sure it will help to speed up the movement towards real 4K UHD gaming.”
JAIMIE, LEADER COMPUTERS:
“4K monitors are still a fairly low percentage when looking at the entire market, less than 10%.
If we are looking at the enthusiast market and HEDT segment the picture is more interesting though. Close to 40% of Gaming users and almost 80% of professional Graphics workstation customers are purchasing 4K panels, with another large share buying 2K.
While you are talking about the new Nvidia GPU coming, the early adopters will mostly be in these segments. I see a definite increase in 4K screens to the gaming segment, and with the increase in volume, hopefully we see a reduction in price to fit the economy of scale. I would not expect 4K to become the favoured mainstream resolution until prices fall below $300 AUD for 27in”
