    I've tested and tried it. Honestly, I don't really like the result on my screen. Great for screenshots but pretty bad for actual use.

    A 780 could maintain AC4 on max settings without AA on 1080p on solid 60fps in all conditions ?

    I am assuming the answer to this is yes, at 1080p

    The answer is no. If I turn everything to low, then I can maintain a sold 75 FPS. Otherwise, my FPS is all over the place.

    Some of those as well
    Well, from what I've seen, 4K removes the need for the higher levels of antialiasing. Slap on some FXAA and you're laughing. Proper antialiasing is what each up VRAM at this resolution. I find that in the latest games, if you put on 8xAA or above, the VRAM usage gets mighty close to 3GB but the game becomes jerky as there is simply not enough grunt to make it run.

    As it is, I just use FXAA for the more modern games and that keeps VRAM usage under 2GB. On the other hand, there's something funny about making Homeworld 2 use ~2.5GB VRAM by using 96xAA.

    Yes, it does blur your image, no scaling can rival native sharpness and I read about that on some HDTV site article few years ago. I can see this blur especialy on font types. At first I didnt noticed it in games, because its very subtle blur, but now I learn how to spot the difference. Basically texture in the distance will have less details, and outlines will be less sharp. But this blur is very subtle, definitely not like FXAA. Everytime when I use FXAA I ask myself, MOTHER OF GOD, what just happened with all of this details... but donwsampling looks still sharp, and gives superb AA.

    4K way to pricey at the moment.

    they're talking about downsampling
