Reason I ask is that is my primary reason for holding out for the P-Series as well (using as a TV in my bedroom, but mounted above my computer desk). While the P series supports HDMI 2.0 which can drive 4k at 60fps, nobody has released a video card yet that has HDMI 2.0 support.
Everyone I know running 4k monitors today is doing it through DisplayPort 1.2 with multi-stream transport - which unfortunately the Vizio (or to my knowledge any 4k TV at the moment) doesn't have. I've heard some rumors that you may be able to get a DisplayPort to HDMI 2.0 adapter though I still don't see how that could carry 4k across at 60hz as there is no conversion of multi-stream (basically the stitching together of two signals) to HDMI.
Yeah, that was why I wasn't interested that much in the 4k HDTV yet. They have to have HDMI 2.0, and 60hz. Right now, you can run a 30hz. I didn't think about video cards not supporting HDMI 2.0. Supposedly, you can run 2 780 Ti in SLi to do 4k. But dropping $1k on video cards is a bit much right now.
