Hardware, Embedded Systems "Asus has just announced the cure for the common 20-something-inch 1080p display: a small TV-sized 31.5-inch monitor with a massive resolution of 3840x2160. Engadget reports that the Asus PQ321 display, which uses IGZO technology to reduce energy usage and thickness, includes DisplayPort and dual-HDMI input, integrated speakers, and an adjustable stand." The dread of 1366 and 1080p is being removed. Finally.

If you can afford a 2000-5000$ 4K display, its very unlikely that you'll be stupid enough to connect it to a cheap IGP such as Intel HD / AMD IGP. I would imagine most most people will either buy a professional card or buy a high-end discrete card.

4K/QFHD displays start in the $1300-1500 range depending on if theres a sale. Just look up the Korean makes like the Seiki SE50UY04, which is 50", which is actually right in line with a 1080p TV of that size.

I think you'd be surprised by the number of uses there are for a large high resolution display that aren't gaming related, some may be a but on the absurd side like all the TVs being used as bulletin boards at colleges.
