Watching 4K YouTube videos on Google Chome is about to get much faster

The ability to watch 4K video on YouTube has been around for a few years now. Unfortunately, though, actually getting 4K video to run smoothly is a whole another story. The problem is that 4K video simply has so much data that many folks simply lack the requisite bandwidth and/or patience to make viewing 4K clips all that practical.

You don’t want to know how much it costs to play GTA 5 in 4K on your PC

Surprising no one, Grand Theft Auto 5 has had a smashing debut on PC, quickly becoming the most played third-party game on Steam just days after its release.

But we all know that the real reason to get GTA 5 on PC is to see Rockstar’s game in stunning 4K. Unfortunately, most of us are never going to have that chance. More →

4K Display for Tablets

Amazing 4K displays are coming soon to 10-inch tablets

Amazing 4K displays are coming soon to 10-inch tablets

Japan Display on Wednesday announced that it has already developed an ultra-high resolution 4K x 2K LCD module for tablets that’s not only capable of offering a huge 3840 x 2160 resolution on a 10.1-inch display, but it’s also energy-efficient. The company said in its announcement that even though the new tablet screen has 4K resolution, power consumption will be similar to 10.1-inch WQXGA LCD modules (which have 2560 x 1600 resolution), as it uses low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) technology.

Upcoming 4K Android tablet games could blow away anything you see on the iPad

There are plenty of reasons to pick an Android tablet instead of an iPad, but a great selection of third-party games has never been one of them. Although many of the most popular iOS apps do eventually make their way to Android, the Google Play store has never been especially competitive with the App Store. The introduction of 4K gaming could change that, however. More →

4K Gaming PC How To

How to build a monster 4K gaming PC for as little money as possible

How to build a monster 4K gaming PC for as little money as possible

Anyone who knows anything about PC gaming knows that there is often a steep price to pay in order to be anywhere near the cutting edge when it comes to the specs of your gaming rig. Gaming PCs are nothing like the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, nor are they anything like the cheap laptops and desktops advertised by PC vendors — they’re in a completely different league and the cost of building a box with the latest and greatest technology can easily reach into the thousands in the blink of an eye. Add in the emerging need to support and view 4K resolution content to be at the bleeding edge and you’ve got a pricey proposition on your hands. But following this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show, 4K monitors can now be had for somewhat reasonable prices and as one gaming industry watcher revealed recently, a monster 4K gaming machine can now be built for less money than ever before.

2014 Olympic Games 4K Coverage

Comcast’s 2014 Olympics coverage to include ‘some stuff’ in 4K

With the increasing number of ultra-high definition (UHD, or 4K) TV sets and displays being launched by various companies – including affordable models that were just introduced at CES 2014 – content providers are apparently trying to provide more 4K content that can take advantage of the higher resolution screens. Comcast has confirmed during a panel on UHD content that it will start offering 4K content as soon as February, the Hollywood Reporter says, when it will stream “some stuff” in 4K from the 2014 Winter Olympic Games that take place in Sochi from February 7 to February 23.

Vizio 4K TV Price

Vizio is bringing 4K TVs to the market for less than $1000

By on January 8, 2014 at 12:15 AM.

Vizio is bringing 4K TVs to the market for less than $1000

We knew it was coming, but we didn’t expect it quite this soon. According to The Verge, Vizio has revealed the pricing scheme for its P series televisions — 50-inch models with 4K displays will start at just $999.99, and the higher-end 70-inch TV will cost $2,599.99. To put this into perspective, there are still plenty of high-end 50-inch HDTVs currently on the market that retail for around $1000. These prices are a far cry from some of the more audacious announcements during this year’s CES, and could be the first sign of 4K proliferation in the coming months and years. Although Vizio is known for affordable TVs, analysts have been predicting an abrupt price equalization in the 4K market for months. It appears that sooner rather than later, owning a 4K set won’t be a distant dream.

Here are a few 4K displays you can actually afford

Ultra HD has been all the rage at CES once again this year, but much of the coverage has focused on outlandishly expensive televisions that would hardly fit in the average living room. As it turns out, plenty of companies were quietly revealing reasonably sized displays as well, so 9to5Mac assembled a list of a few of the more affordable options for those who want 4K without breaking the bank.
