Nvidia Shows 4K Surround Gaming With Assassin’s Creed IV
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Got a spare $20,000 for your next gaming rig setup? If you answered yes, then lucky you! But if like me you’re are shopping on a more modest end of the PC gaming market, then here is something for you to at least drool over. Nvidia took to showing off a monster gaming rig, fitted out with triple 4K displays running Assassin’s Creed IV, that’s 24.9 Megapixels of gaming gorgeousness.
4K gaming is the new buzz word, the new “cool”, the new target for benchmarking and while it may still be out of the reach of many gamers, not only because the GPU power needed is pretty epic, but also because screens often cost around £3000 / $4500 each. Adding three monster screens and 3 high end GPU’s into a finely tuned gaming rig to push triple 4K is an incredibly expensive endevour, but the end result is truly something to behold.
Each of the three Asus PQ321Q 31.5 4K Ultra HD monitors is running at 3840 x 2160 in portrait mode, giving you a total of 6480 x 3840 resolution. Which according to my own made up statistic is about as many pixels as you need to melt your brain. Three GTX Titan 6GB cards make up 18GB of GDDR5 memory and the rest of the PC is no slouch either, the Maingear Shift gaming PC. Gameplay may have been relatively smooth, but even triple Titans were being stretched to their limit and some graphics settings were wound down from maximum to keep FPS at a good pace.
