Think of it like this, as more and more devices support more and more higher res monitors, you won't always have one unit or point equal one pixel for instance, like back in the day. I haven't done any hardcore GDI work in a looooooooong time, but I'd wager if you have a high resolution because of the 8k display then these days Windows should in-fact scale it to use a higher ppi and thus not have everything so tiny since most apps don't attempt to circumvent the GDI API. The result will be a much, much clear image... much like a Retina display on a Mac.

If it's not automatic due to lack of monitor drivers, etc. then perhaps there's a way to set it manually (not sure yet).

It's a lot like printing at 300dpi when you have a 72ppi monitor, it looks smaller on print. If we had the monitor at 300ppi and the printer at 300dpi, they'd be the same size. So, same concept, just in reverse.

For those that haven't, 'tis yet another reason to upgrade from Windows XP.
