4k TV as monitor

Does anyone know if there is any issue using a 50 or 55 inch monitor with UE4? I like to get one in split it into 4 virtual screen with no additional physical monitor. Any graphical issue since I’m splitting it into multiple monitors?

Sorry for the doubleposts. The original thread didn’t post, so I thought it messed up and created another one. Moderator, please delete this post.

I’m not sure how the splitting gets controlled. As a single display it should work, though UE4 doesn’t scale the UI for high resolution screens.

To my knowledge, all relatively cheap 4K panels only do 30Hz at 4K. Many advertise 60Hz, but it can only do that at resolutions like 1080p. Unless you don’t care, make sure you find out what it’s specced for.

I’d be worried about scaling, performance, the refresh rate, and splitting the screen into multiple monitors. You’ll need to find a 4k TV that supports 60 hz and Displayport 1.3, as well as have a GPU with Displayport 1.3.

The Philips BDM4065UC, is a 40-inch 60Hz 4k monitor.

What I’ve seen, the 30Hz is mostly connection problem. Display Port 1.2+ can handle 4K @ 60Hz, while HDMI can’t. Even Dell P2415Q (the cheapest 4K in my country, 24’) can handle 4K at 60Hz when used with Display Port 1.2. But it’s sure helpful to verify it.

I did some research on the 4k monitors and there are a few that you can get 4K @ 60HZ and chroma 4:4:4 with HDMI 2. Nvidia GTX 970 or 980 should be able to output that. I’m just worry how UE4 would react to virtual monitors. Each virtual monitor would be 1920 x 1080P. May be I should just go with two 27" 1440P to make sure there is no issue. It just so much cleaner to get one monitor and split however you want. Also, it can be used as a TV if you want to watch something.

Is there any reason to need to split it into 4 virtual monitors? Why not arrange the Windows into quarter-size tiles?

I guess that will work, but it just much easier to arrange windows in multiple screen. You can maximize, drag, snap, etc easier and not have to resize the windows everytime.

This 40" 4K 60hz, chroma 4:4:4 monitor is kind of pricey for a no name Brand…

This one is pretty darn good for the money:
Here’s an insightful review for it as well:

Defiantly one that’s in my wishlist! :wink:

You should be able to use a 4ktv as a monitor without a problem. I use a 42" Panasonic Plasma for gaming but on a day to day basis no. After seeing my Samsung Galaxy S5 with some serious burn in problems I choose not to use TV’s for monitors.


yes 4k tv is one of the best tv which will give you very good clarity and advanced function to used for internet services .
