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.

  • 8k tvs are pointless for anything bellow 75 inches hardly worth the hassle in storage and bandwidth. I rather have 10 bit full chroma resolution on 4k content than 4:2:0 on 8k. (For video, for games we are 10 years away from hardware that can properly render it at 120hz+)

  • Hey Linus, your 3 adapters "solution" (obviously didn't work out) was creative and funny xD, but dumb (though worth a try, right xD). I would like to watch u put ur hands on a SONY 8K MicroLED and LG 8K OLED gaming. Tell us as soon as you get ur 8K OLED pc connected, wanna see ur first time gaming experience with that.

  • Its not worth it in my opinion. 4k is perfectly fine for me. I'm even cool with old school regular 1080i. Ya know what really blows my mind? I've got a 55inch 4k LG Nano 8 that I got on sale for a little over $700. I use it for my One X to play Forza and a few other games that really look good on a big screen. I got the One X for $500 when it first released. In all seriousness, Forza looks insanely good on the big screen (and so do the other games). Its crazy that a good 4k gaming rig is so expensive while 4k consoles are going for cheap in comparison. No, I am not a PC hater. I'm not a console fanboy either. I enjoy them for what they both have to offer. I'm just confused as to why there is such a huge price difference between the 2. Years ago, there was no comparison. PC gaming was where it was at! If you wanted to play games that offered the most visualizing graphics available, you played them on a PC. A console couldn't even come close. Now though, consoles are catching up. Although my $4,000 gaming rig can play Forza in crisp, clear and stunning 4k at 60+ fps, for me to experience the game on anything bigger than 32in is impossible! I'm not spending a years worth of my savings to make it possible either. What I can do though is buy a One X and experience 4k 60+fps graphics on my big screen. One day, gaming PCs will be a thing of the past. They will fade into a hobby. That's kind of where its at for me now. I absolutely love building gaming rigs. Its an expensive hobby, but theres nothing like combing the internet for parts and building a gaming rig. However when it comes to PC gaming, you gotta keep up with drivers and all of the crazy little annoyances that happen when a game releases. You know the feeling of buying a new game and crossing your fingers when you go to launch it for the first time. I know I'm gonna get ripped for this comment. PC gaming still offers the best graphics when it comes to gaming, but consoles are coming up. It doesn't really bother me. I'm happy that gamers who couldn't afford to experience great graphics now have the opportunity to do so. It seems to me that if they can figure out how to make 4k gaming consoles affordable that they would be able to do the same with PCs. One day I did hook my PC up to my TV just to see what would happen. The "PC" tasks worked just fine, but when I tried to game... My computer got sick!

  • "can I kill the task?" yeah, get a wonderful program called "Task Blocker". I got so fed up with so many automated things with Windows 10 that I always run it. The only downside is that on Windows 10 it won't automatically start when the computer starts, so I have to manually set it up each time, and I have the keys and only seen the task list corrupt so I just maintain a backup, but it works beautifully to prevent this kind of thing from happening. Whenever the task starts it immediately shuts it down. It's great for getting your computer under control.

  • In your opinion, which would be better : An 8k monitor or an 8k TV? And, given nvidia's arbitrary 3 monitor limit, does that mean that Nvidia sucks now? Or do you expect that they will eventually be competitive in the 8K Market?

    Elliander EldridgeElliander Eldridge9 gün önce
  • You can get a samsung 55 inch q900 for roughly 2100 usd now. The problem is getting it to support 8k. I can't manage to get it to support windows 10 at 8k 60fps with my 2080ti, but that's obviously an issue with the hdmi. Hopefully linus can shine some light on a solution? So far im stuck at 8k 30fps.
