Not so long ago if you found yourself owning a full HD monitor you were considered lucky. In the last year 4K screens have become the go-to option when it comes to high-end gaming, transforming something which was impossible a few years ago to a necessity nowadays.
These monitors have four times the resolution of a full HD one which basically means that more pixels can be found crammed into the same area. The more pixels a monitor has the more detailed and crisp an image will appear. It is highly recommended that a 4K screen should have at least 27 inches to get the most out of it.
4K gaming is surely setting to become a staple in this industry as huge tech giants like Microsoft and Sony are developing devices which are made to destroy each boundary that a game has to offer with their PS4 Pro and the current Xbox Project Scorpio which is hid under the curtains. We’ve come up with a list of monitors which fit every budget and listed some of their specs to make you have a clear understanding on what they have to offer.
