Anyways: 4k screen?

It sure is, the most cheap AOC display there was €499. i'm really happy with it, but everything is kind of small..
First i had it running at max 30Hz witch is really bad. now i got it at 40Hz which is nice.

not sure if my GPU can handle it that good, i have integrated graphics "Intel HD 3000",
on my newer laptop i can't get the 165Mhz pixel clock cap off.. so it does not support this resolution

The native resolution is a little small, but if i put it in 1080p HiDPi it is just to big (but really sharp).
I was trying to set it in 1440p HiDPi (because that is a nice resolution) and then scale it down to UHD, but my Graphics card is not willing to give me 5120x2880, but it would probably look really good.

For now i see it as a good investment, do you guys think about getting a 4k monitor?

I tested it with Half Life 2: Lost Coast, on 4k with all setting on low (V-Sync off) and my HD3000 got about 12FPS on the stress test.

Spoiler For Spoiler:

funny is i waited 30days for this monitor, and when i didn't get it then i bought it somewhere else and got it in 22h shiped to the door (DON'T BUY AT ALTERNATE) <--- Bad Store!

Welp, an IntelHD3000 doesn't quite match the specs for your screen. Good luck gaming on that :x

You can probably use xrandr to force your display to a certain resolution. I used newrez (which is using xrandr) to set my netbook's resolution to 1344x752, which is not really standard.

For now i see it as a good investment, do you guys think about getting a 4k monitor?
As you said, everything is too small so I don't really see the point of buying a 4K monitor to set its resolution to 1080p, which is what I would do if I got one
I own: 83+ ; 84+SE ; 76.fr ; CX CAS ; Prizm ; 84+CSE

It is small but i need to get used to it, it is really handy for programming with sources left and right and code somewhere in the middle,
the 1080p HiDPi mode means GUI scaling 1080p retina like, i switch between these resolutions:

I don't really game, or i set a really small resolution, HD3000 is no gaming card no matter resolution (i can always steal my dad's work computer).

There were no Pinball clones for Linux before?

As for 4K res screens I doubt my graphic card and computer would even handle them because the graphic cars is from early 2012 and the computer, although an higher end work machine, early 2010.

However, isn't it possible in some OSes to resize the theme fonts and icons on large resolutions to make them easier to read? I remembieber it was possible under Windows 2000 and XP.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

That's probably Wine.

Also have the excerpt of my theme.lua I changed based on those colors, for you Awesome WM users, if you want a Princess Luna theme:

Code: [Select]

Yes there is, but not so much becoase the resolution is nog realy supported by the hardware.
