1080p monitor size is commonly 24 inch, while 4K monitor size is commonly 32 inch or beyond... but, there are some company who provide 4K monitor 24 inch (for example : dell ultrasharp UP2414Q)...

what advantage i can get???

none. if your thinking gaming. there isnt a single card out there that can drive todays games at more than high(not ultra) settings on a 4k screen.
4k is still some way off for most of us and the people that do have it arnt playing games but instead are using it for productivity.
also price is a limiting factor, there really not cheap.

oi... not much unless you're willing to pay 2000 on gpus... like 2 780tis or 2 r9-290x or something in that class, to push the pixels for that 4k monitor.

frankly at 24" i think you need to be 6 inches from the screen to see the difference in 4k and 1080p (leave it to dell to make and market a useles device like a 24" 4k monitor). so unless you plan to wear that monitor you'll probably be better off saving a BOATLOAD of cash on both the monitor and gpus going 1080p

the smaller dot pitch means you dont need things like antialiasing on such a small physical size but high pitch screen.
at 30 inches you still wouldn't need AA but at 40 you may start to notice jaggies if your sitting rite up against it (within 5 feet).

well first of all there are no 24 ich 4k display.. it's minimum of 27 or 28 i believe and 2nd a Gtx 780 and up can run 4k with a respectable 30fps on ultra in quite alot of games.

but 4k is way off still we need like 3x as powerful Gpu as now to run 4k perfectly. so going 4k screen without having atleast 2x or 3x gtx 780 or 780 ti is a waste

lets check prices shall we?

780 can cost as low as what 450$ and 780 ti 800$? while cheapest 4k screen from asus or dell will be around 999$ and if we say u need 3 780 ti to run perfectly 4k then that would run easily up to more then 5000$ just to get a decent cpu,psu,motherboard and so on

no, the OP is right. Dell is making a comically small (24") 4k screen. I just saw an article about it. Someone at dell thinks it might be humanly possible to tell the difference between it and 1080p. As i said in my prior post, at 24" you have to be something stupid like 4 to 6" away from the screen to see the difference between 4k and 1080p. This is the basic technical problem with 4k and computers. To be able to tell the diffeence between 1080p and 4k you need some big monitors... small normal computer screens won't work.

Of course that won't stop DELL from making and marketing a 24" 4k screen. I mean dell and other computer manufacturers love to stick 1080p screens on computers with intel HD graphics and call it a "gaming" laptop. I mean the number of laptops out there with 1080p monitors and underpowered gpus is mindblowing; I'm sure we'll start to see 4k laptop screens soon, even though even in SLi/xfire the strongest laptop gpu could never game in 4k, and no laptop screen would be big enough or close enough to the users face to make any difference.

lol mate you can tell the difference up to 3-4 feet away if you have 20/20 vision. i can see the pixels on my 1080p screen thats why i play most games with x4 aa. so in theory a 4k screen being 4 times the dot pitch would remove that need. you would stuill be able to tell the difference between a screen showing 1080p x4 aa and a 4 k screen because aa blurs the edges where as on 4k without aa you would get slightly sharper image...
in most cases though your rite it is overkill. it just takes to much grunt to run them on a gaming setup.
