Being one of the world’s largest supplier of various displays, Samsung Electronics surprisingly still does not offer any monitor with ultra-high-definition resolution. That is going to change next week, when Samsung debuts its first UHD 4K (3840*2160) displays at IFA trade-show in Berlin, Germany. The firm will showcase a 31.5” UHD monitor as well as 98” UHD commercial large format display (LFD).

“Samsung Electronics will lead the world’s UHD products market by aggressively introducing UHD-based commercial displays and monitors, starting at IFA 2013,” said Jeong-hwang Kim, senior vice president of enterprise business team at visual display business unit of Samsung Electronics.

With 8.3 million pixels and 3840*2160 resolution, the 31.5” UHD monitor has four times the number of pixels than that of a full HD display (2.07 million pixels and 1920*1080 resolution) and provides a brilliantly realistic screen with high resolution, according to Samsung. The monitor also supports calibration. A thorough inspection is conducted by dividing the screen into 25 divisions and checking for color values. Calibration is also possible through separate software, which consumers can use to adjust colors. In addition, it can express richer colors among existing monitors by displaying 1 billion colors and supporting 99% coverage of Adobe RGB color space. Samsung did not reveal any

Samsung Electronics’ 98” UHD LFD is the largest in the industry and provides four times higher resolution than full HD displays available in the market. As a result, viewers can enjoy life-like detail and picture quality.

The 98” UHD LFDs can be installed vertically to create a larger display screen for an immersive viewing experience. For instance, at IFA 2013, Samsung Electronics will create large video walls in sizes of 171” – about the size of a passenger car – by connecting three vertically oriented UHD LFDs side by side. Visitors will be able to experience high picture quality that is 12 times the resolution of full HD displays.

4K is good for office work or graphics design. But currently is useless for gaming, since you need like a triple Crossfire/SLI to output average FPS...

Not really TAVIX, Just depends on the game and the engine used. Some play no problem on triple screens with decent fps others are a slideshow!
If you have a high end card from either AMD or Nvidia you are already set for when 4k takes off.
