    The industry needs to get its shit together.4k hasn't even caught on yet,and they are already looking past it. Literally by the time 4k gets to 50% Adoption it will be Obsolete.
    The ps5 and xbox 2 are already right now UNDERPOWERED as in 3 years 8k will be what 4k is today.
    Unbelievable!! GET YOUR SHITS TOGETHER!!!

    I guess 8k will be the new 4k in like 5 years I guess....eventually vr is going to just destroy everything.

    Imagine that, you pay for new technology for 8K display but you have to get advice for how to set it up and use it from tech support! WOW

    SCIENCE: You eyes can’t see 8k. They can’t even see 4K unless your display is 65 inches or larger. What’s the point? I don’t plan on gaming at 4K on my 24inch display because it’s a waste of resources and time.

    Looks terrible on my screen lol. It's a little like Amy Wong's obscene tattoo in Futurama:
    Bender: Hey! Get a load of this pathetic 20th century T.V.
    Fry: What's wrong with it?
    Bender: Well, aside from causing eye cancer, these things had a lousy low-definition picture.
    Amy: That's true. I bet on a T.V. like this you couldn't even make out my obscene tattoo.

    8K HD TV are useless, the human eye can't see 8K graphics so there for 8K TVs are useless, 4K are no different because the human eye can just see the true 4k HD

    Once 8k becomes normal most people will realise that 4k was all you needed. Unless you're looking for 240 inch screens.

    WTF is the use case for this? Srsly, that power and component brick is a huge step back into the past. Poor design choice leading to a waste in production. Good luck

    The ASC did a test, when HD was just becoming a viable format for cinema. They asked the audience to hold up their hands, as they cycled up from 240p to higher resolutions, and drop them, when they could no longer see a difference. Hands fell between 720p and 1080p. When it comes to motion resolution, the brain has a hard time processing detail beyond 720p-1080p. Static resolution is a different matter. But judging at how close you guys are getting to the tv, we've reached the point of diminishing returns on a display that size (and probably much larger).

    Unfortunately hdmi 2.0 was not designed for 8K. It can do 8K as in at last minute they shoved it in to compete with Display port. You need hdmi 2.1 and the cable has to be 2.1 quality.

      Yep and cables are expensive AF atm too. Spent $379AUD for a 20M V2.1 cable to wall port.

      This is also why he couldn't achieve 8K 60hz, as the 2.0 standard can only do 8K 30hz max (Linus may have stated this, i just skipped through). LG have confirmed earlier this year that their first 8K tv will feature FULL hdmi 2.1 support for future proofing.
