Home Reviews Peripherals Samsung 4K UHD 28” monitor

The UD590 UHD LED monitor has 3840 x 2160 pixels packed into a 28”, 16:9 ratio screen. It is huge and I want one – well two actually!

Before we get into the specifics please be aware while it claims to be able to do 4K up scaling you may need a video card capable of displaying 4K.

Some recent notebooks support this resolution and desktop users may have to buy a new PCI-e, 4GB (or more) video card using a NVidia or Radeon chipset. These range in price from about $200 to over four thousand dollars. Be aware that high-end cards will achieve the best 4K video frame rates.

I have also found that the graphics card optimally should use Display port over HDMI if you want to daisy chain two monitors.
