    The Samsung Q900R QLED 8K TV offers a top class in visuals, clarity, and just overall an amazing experience, but what does it take to really get 8K working when the tech isn't quite there yet to output it.

    Well, that's enough explain why Japan is making it harder for Samsung to create displays.

    Gaming at 8k on a 65” tv, that is too funny 😂 Gonna need a RTX 4080 with 64 GB DDR7 and the cost of that card will only be an affordable $6999 when it comes out in about, ohhhhh, 5 years time when 16k TVs are the norm 😆

    I don't understand why the manufacturers are jumping to 8k when there's still limited 4k content. Even streaming 4k content on TheXvid can be brutal to watch even with the best cable/internet package from your provider. With so much data in 4k odds are high you'll get the spinning ball with even the best wireless connection in video streaming, so I couldn't even imagine 8k.

    human eye cannot make out difference between 1080 vs 4k vs 8k at certain distances - there is a calculator for that somewhere. So either you will sit unusually close to a 4K/8K TV to benefit from it or will have to buy unusually big TV to sit in your normal viewing place. What's the point ?

    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!!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

      @Ant Man absolutely. Is Optical Fiber better than Silver? Also, where did you get it from?

    • Ant Man
      Ant Man 16 hours ago

      @Classy Yeah but finding anything genuine thats MORE than 2 metres in length is the real challenge. I bought the RUIPRO brand one which is made from optical. So no loss in signal even if over 50 metres. Pricey but will futureproof me for ages and cheaper buying it now then a 4K cable and replacing that in a few years.
