    He is correct, 4k is just a marketing term, it really should be 2160p. They just do it cause it sounds like you're getting more

    Its similar with the 'widescreen' craze from a decade or so ago, where in fact they sell you something smaller eg 20" widescreen 16:9 is smaller than 20" 16:10 and a lot smaller than 20" 4:3
    I guess the meeting went like

    marketer #1 "How can we convince ppl to buy something thats cheaper to produce but charge the same (or more) money for it?"
    marketer #2 "we can be truthful and call it a 'squashedscreen' or shall we deceive the public and call it 'widescreen'"
    marketer #1 "we are marketers, remember being honest doesnt sell products"

    Hence the use of Planck lengths on my tinder profile.

    Or just a easier way for consumers to understand. Anyway, im not blaming DF for anything. If a game renders at 2160p they might aswell call it 4k since everyone else does so, Sony and MS do it for their consoles, all TV manufacturers do, NV, AMD etc. People will understand 4k, 8k much better then example 2160p.
    Mentioning a 44% difference in resolution wouldn't have sounded any better anyway.

    It's like in the early days of PC 4:3 to 16:9 transition and you'd have publishers selling "widescreen" for their game when in fact the FOV would be "tallscreen" for 4:3 users compared to widescreen. Vert+
