Just to make absolutely sure you're aware of this, the P65 can only do [email protected]
; the best it can do at 4k is 60Hz, which is due to HDMI bandwidth limitations. The only display I found in a quick search that can actually do [email protected]
is a $5,000 Dell OLED monitor.
Also, [email protected]
@4:4:4 is only available on HDMI ports 1-4, which have higher input lag (~35ms vs ~18ms) than HDMI5, which in turn can only do [email protected]
4:2:2 8-bit or 4:2:0 10-bit. That port does [email protected]
4:4:4 10-bit or 4:2:2 12-bit, but doesn't support HDMI 2.0, which means you can't use it for HDR games when they come out.
Also also, there's no single-GPU solution yet that can consistently do [email protected]
@max settings. 1080s in SLI might
be able to do that, but that's your entire $1300 budget right there! Personally, I decided that framerate was more important than resolution, so I'm planning on a 1070 as that should be able to do [email protected]
no problem, even if I occasionally have to drop a setting or two a notch down from max. It might even be able to handle [email protected]
on lower settings, although I haven't seen any benchmarks to that effect (haven't gone looking since I don't want to game at 4k). A 1080 is more capable at 4k, but it's also much more expensive - IMHO not worth it, but
is gaming on a P-Series with one and could offer up a different perspective.
So with the P65, you're looking at a series of tradeoffs. You can't do [email protected]
:4:4 with the lowest input lag, you can't do [email protected]
and HDR, etc. Now, I don't have a 2016 Vizio yet - I'm waiting on the Rtings M-Series review to decide between a P65 and an M70 - so I can't tell you how much worse the other 4k chroma values look on HDMI 5, or if 35ms of input lag is actually fine, or any of that kind of thing.
You can build a system with a Skylake i5 & 1070 in it for roughly your $1300 budget, and it should do you just fine for [email protected]
gaming for the foreseeable future - I'm going i5-4590 / 1070 in my system, so if I'm wrong, then I'll be boned too.
