    Re: 8.3.1 with a 4K monitor

    8.3.1 supports 4k full screen preview, i cannot find if the smaller UHD is being supported though, but i guess it is.

    If GeForce cards will work depends on the drivers you install. I have a GeForce card as well and the most recent drivers are not working with it, so I need to downgrade to an older driver. What is not working is, that the video is not updating in source/record monitor, audio is hearable.

    You'll find that the UI doesn't scale up appropriately. From what I've heard, the menus and text on panels are quite hard to read.

    Anyone else with first hand experience?

    Yes I'd confirm that a 28" UHD screeen makes MC pretty unreadable at native resolution.

    Until we get UI scaling you are better to stick to HD monitors (and even the some editors find the icons too small)
