Does anyone have experience with the new generation of 4K (28 zoll) displays and SSDR?
Of course with appropriate GC and DP for max (3840x2160) & 60 Hz

I am interested about the performaces and the presentation when all 8 PA running.

How high is the max (or recommendet)  support the SSDR display resolution?

Thanks in advance.

Emil, we designed the display code to work up to 4096 pixels wide (as I remember -- it might have been 8192 pixels).  The displays claiming to be 4k are either 3840 or 4096 wide.  Either way, your max panadapter width should be something less than this because of display borders, panels, etc. so you should be fine.  If you are running 8 panadapters, you would be at half of whatever was left over also.  Having said all this, we have not tried to run on a monitor larger than 2560 x 1440, but it worked great on this monitor.
