While I’m not shooting high mp at the time, it does make a difference. A few years ago in 2015 I was using “only” 24 mp camera and went on safari... I had seen my own photos, on my normal laptop... then went to my wife’s relatives house that had a 70” 4K screen to look at images on...wow... didn’t know my photography looked that good. So yes, I get it.

Well, 4K is 8 294 400 pixels, that is 8 MP or around 13 MP, using the 24x36 mm aspect ratio.

It is often said that something like 180 PPI is needed for an excellent print. So, printing 30" x 45" needs 44 MP, at least for close scrutiny.

Best regards
