Does this display have too many pixels for a 27-inch form factor?

Iiyama releases their ProLite XB2779QQS 5K FreeSync display

Iiyama new 5K ProLite XB2779QQS has hit the market, offering a 4x resolution increase over 1440p displays and a 7.11x increase in pixel count over 1080p. 

The ProLite XB2779QQS uses an IPS panel and can offer a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz over DisplayPort 1.4 and a G2G response time of 4ms. Iiyama has listed this monitor with support for AMD FreeSync, though at this time the display's FreeSync/VRR range is unknown.    

Looking at this panels specifications, it is clear that this monitor has more than a few downsides, with its 6-bit+FRC colour support giving it lower colour depth than many of today's "Professional-grade" displays. Alongside this monitor's dual DisplayPort 1.4 connections are three HDMI 2.0 ports, which support a maximum resolution of 4K at 60Hz. This monitor also comes with some rather large bezels, which may become an annoyance if used in a multi-display setup. 
 
This monitor will ship with VESA 100x100 mount support, with a stock stand which offers tilt, height and swivel adjustments. The monitor also comes with two 2.5W speakers, not that we would ever recommend using them over an external sound setup.

The Iiyama ProLite XB2779QQS is designed to offer users value for money, providing a rare resolution in a standard 27-inch form factor at prices as low as £729.99 in the UK. While this is a lot for a monitor, it must be remembered how niche the market for 5K displays is, especially when compared to 4K and 1440p.

It's not, it is 27" diag. So it's even worse. And why would I want to buy a 5k monitor when I already threw a few thousand pounds at 4k lol?

I need this like a hole in my head.Quote

I'm with ya. My 4K panel is holding up just fine. Still too small, but I'm waiting for a decent 34" + option before I buy another one.Quote

My XP tames 4k. Not as well as I wanted it to, but hey it works.

I don't run Wildlands at 4k though. TBH it is probably the first game ever that I just played. And we are now 15 hours into it and the other day my mate does a benchmark and says "Holy crap min 36 FPS max 64 FPS". I ask him what he's doing wrong, he says nothing it's 4k. Then I remembered I had not DSR to 4k and I was hitting min 74 FPS max 120. I maxed out pretty much everything, still getting min 54 FPS max around 90.

And dear lord does it look incrediballs now. Great game, but it gets bloody hard bloody fast tbh.Quote

that's actually not a bad price for what certainly appears to be pretty good specs
Having said that, I do feel that a monitor with freesync with only 60hz @4k is a bit lackingQuote
