4k at a max of 30Hz and a TN panel. Why would anyone ever buy this?

believe we still need a new connection to use 120Hz, thought I heard they would need a whole new display port connection? Otherwise be gaming at 60Hz still on a 4k monitor. Maybe is the change on the tech side of things slowing progress down, but monitors seem to be lacking these days.

Is there even an ips monitor that guys are using to play bf4 even?
Seems like i am stuck @ 1920 x 1080...

It's an IGZO panel, if you are referring to the 32". I'm pretty sure the 24" and 28" Dells are IPS panels.

I've seen the IGZO panel in the Asus/Sharp model (The Asus is the same as the Sharp). It doesn't have the white glow of IPS but it doesn't have the typical super-high contrast of VA panels either, somewhere around 700-800:1.

60hz can be achieved via MST (multi-stream transport) Display Port. This can cause some issues with some older adapters in having the BIOS/Post screens not show up, but R9 and later GTX 7 series adapters seemingly work fine.

I was referring to the $800 28" Dell. It is a TN, and at 4k runs at 30Hz.

Yeah, I see that. That's not desirable IMHO either from a panel technology point-of-view or considering the low refresh rate. Big fat pass.
