    4k monitors are only a viable option for gaming on pc if you're willing to buy new graphics cards every couple of years. 4k needs 4 times the power of 1080p, So every frame drop in 1080 means you lose 4 frames in 4k. Simply said, for every year you get optimal graphics on your 4k rig, you get four years on your 1080p

    The sweet spot for high end machines at the moment is 1440p @144Hz.


    4k for consoles is stupid, there was still so much to to be improved at 1080p, texture resolution, shaders, anti aliasing, draw distance, more detailed models,... . Now you'll have 4k resolution with 1/4 of the detail and fluidity you could have had on the 1080p. 


    The only reason to get a 4k device is video.

    PS4 Pro is a finnicky piece of kit and it won't output at 4k unless connected to a screen through HDMI 2.0 and the screen is actively accepting a 4k 60Hz input. So in case of computer monitors, you just plug it in and it's good to go and in case of TVs you need to switch HDMI input mode to 'high resolution' (or something of that type) and use 'game' mode to lower input latency. 

    If the right conditions are not met, 4k option will be greyed out on a PS4 Pro so Kdin is basically good to go if it's saying that he's in 4k. It actually kind of sucks that the Pro can't output 4k in 30Hz over HDMI 1.4 as I had to buy a new screen when I already had a 4k screen. Most of the games are upscaled from 1440p anyway so it seems like a huge missed opportunity to not allow 1440p output whereas XbOX can take advantage that option.

      I'm curious, I do not believe I have a HDMI 2.0 cable connected, but my TV is reading my resolution as 3640x2160 UHD HDR. Does this just mean I actually have a 2.0 cable or is it just my TV not actually running it and just saying it? If you don't know that's understandable lol

      HDMI 2.0 is the port on your console/TV and it means that it's accepting higher bandwidth than other HDMI 1.4 ports (new TVs and screens have at least 1 HDMI 2.0 port and maybe a bunch of 1.4 ports).

      Since you have a 4k HDR TV, I'm assuming you must have a HDMI 2.0 port, and most new HDMI cables are 'high speed' cables capable of supporting 4k@60Hz image.

      I believe some of the older cables would attempt to display the picture but it would come with some digital artifacts because of lack of bandwidth in the cable itself. If your TV and console say you're in 4k, you're in 4k :)
