Can gaming at 8K really be easy in 2019? Sharp thinks so, and they sent over a demo unit to show us just how easy it is. But they didn't account for one thing... the Linus factor.

  • and like i was angling at - hdmi is a poorly thought out connector - pins are too close together for high frequency/voltage uses maybe why we get computers built in to screens to get around the cable run / amps / gauge / shielding issues - i would like to see each pixel be a computer and some randy as wiring network between them all - every pixel have a memory a cpu/gpu a network card and be part of a network group at a hardware level picture pluging in a cpu to a mother board but the entire backside of the screen - we are meant to be flying cars and living on the moon not using crap computers

  • I wish I was able to even try some of the things you test out. Sadly, I am on a VERY VERY limited income (less than $900 per month due to being on Disability Income). I can barely afford an ok PC for the games I play. I do like what you said about making a conflict where there is no conflict. That about sums me up as well.

Gawd, the coding that goes into anything real-time ... mind-warping difficulty! p.s. do any PCs harness multiple CPU? 2, or 4 ... wouldn't break the bank. Though heh the mobo would be more precious than gold. *_Haaaaa I recognized that Win10 install menu!_*

  • Really nice tv looks heavy and depending on where you're from that tv will cost as much as a decent car I don't think there's any serious content for 8k yet that's the downside to having the latest version it's expensive
