DragonFly BSD


Notes on using DragonFly with 4K displays

4K display output is 3840x2160 and is well supported on Haswell or later cpus and discrete GPUs manufactured in 2014 or later. If the hardware supports it, DragonFly supports it, but there are a number of gotchas you have to look out for.

The main issue is that you are pushing 4x the number of pixels, requiring 4x the horsepower for the same perceived performance. 4K monitor output is beautiful but it comes at a cost.
