This is sort of related to this question. The 13.3 inch Early 2015 Macbook has a resolution of
2560 x 1600. I'm not an expert on displays, I've done a lot of Googling but don't seem to understand.
How does my Retina Display with resolution
2560 x 1600 show up on a 4K screen with resolution:
4096 × 2160 in terms of quality of image? What will the pixel density on my monitor? Let's say the monitor I'm after is specifically this:
BenQ EL2870U 28 inch 4K HDR10 Gaming Monitor, UHD 3840x2160, FreeSync, 1ms Response Time, Eye-Care, Brightness Intelligence Plus, HDMI, DP, Built-in Speakers.
Is my picture quality going to be fantastic? Or am I making a mistake trying to fit
2560 X 1600into
4096 X 2160, 27 inchesand it's going to be super grainy with me being able to distinguish between pixels?
What are the monitor specifications that I should be looking for to get the BEST picture quality
Assuming that I may upgrade my laptop and simply end up getting a CPU later on in the future, and money isn't my biggest concern, can I just get a 4K monitor and downscale the monitor's resolutions to
2560 X 1600?
The purpose of buying the monitor is not primarily gaming per say, but I would love to get the same FPS that I can on my laptop when playing Dota 2 and less lag during the data transfer from HDMI or whatever appropriate cable. My laptop supports Thunderbolt 2.
