      what's the use of that when you can hardly have any screen space on that screen? I gave my dad this monitor because he uses Photoshop a lot and shoots tons of images he needs to edit. Nothing better than being able to view your photo at 100% with adobe RGB.

    HDMI 2.1 should handle 120hz 10k and probably 144hz 8k. Now that I think about it are 2019 monitors basically caught up with HDMI 2.1?

    i have to wonder is 8k even possible the current gen and 2+ gen graphics cards when have issues in processing 4k and 4khdr content at this stage how much ram will we need to process 8k on the gpu let alone the system ram that will likely be a need as an offset to process 8k without crashing programs to the desktop...

    A similar screen [55 "] of 8K (7680 × 5320) at this same distance [1m] exceeds the eye with 20 ppi so in this case we would need a large room with a distance of at least 5 meters to enjoy in completely this resolution. In other words companies like Dell will brainwash you to buy their products. 8K is completely useless.

    New gpu also "Technically" supports 8k, but i had completely forgotten about this video and that 8k displays where publically available.

    Just wait fellas, remember how 10 years ago that true 4k gaming was impossible? Now in 2019 you can game at 4k 144Hz!
    Which is thanks to new monitor technologies, and the biggest breakthrough in graphics card linking technology which is NVLink from Nvidia.
    Just imagine 10 years from now, I imagine we will be able to game at 8k 144Hz! Dual graphics card setups will become normal, and technology will become even more cheaper. :)

    • Christian Cameron
      Christian Cameron 2 months ago

      Actually quite the opposite on sli, nvidia is doing there best to discourage sli with higher power gpus in return. Remember before the 10 series launched they said their goal was to play in 4k on a single card. One of these days it will be 8k on a single card. Meanwhile I thought I was sitting pretty playing at 1080p but whatever I guess

  • Bi11y

    Oh man! I just got a 32" 4k monitor from Samsung (UJ59) and it is AMAZING! I can play most modern titles made in 2018 at maxish settings @ 60FPS!
    Thanks to my beast setup, an RTX2080ti, i7-8700k, 32GB of 2400MHz RAM, and liquid cooling to top it off. AND! I also got all this at the young age of 19.
    AND! Not thanks to my parents, but with about 8 months of working in a factory from 3AM-3PM Mon-Thur. :) I also have an HTC Vive.
    My goal later on in my life is to have an 8k monitor, another RTX2080ti w/NVLink to play games at maxish settings at 60FPS in 8k, and to also play VR in 4k. :D
