  1. Best answer
    1080 means the height, 5760 means length, so 1080 is still the amount of pixels on the height, but length is larger so it's 5760
  2. Because you're not adding any resolution above or below the monitors since they're side by side.

  5. yeah i thought it was both going up. so how does 4k work like it has 2x the pixels in the same size right(like a 27inch 4k monitor as 2x the pixels then a 1080p monitor in the same size)

    4k is 3840 x 2160 for consumers and 4096 x 2160 for the professional industry,
  7. It's not 2x the size, but essentially there is just more pixels on the screen (resolution of 3840x2160 vs 1920x1080).

    hey thanks guys. why do professionals get more pixels.(i always was confused as to why there werent 4k pixels on 3k.)
  9. "4k" DCI standard is 4096 x 2160. Most of the time for consumer monitors and TVs, when they say "4k" they're generally referring to UHD which is 3840x2160
  10. wow that sucks get they stuff together.
