    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.

    It is impossible for the human eye to see in 4K. Therefore you cant see in 8k. ~Google it~

    Having finally got it working at 8k and then found the frame rates lacking, I would have tried running the games at 6k instead, if that's possible: See how the lower res (and any artefacts from showing 6k output on an 8 display) trade off against getting better framerates: Is it still significantly better experience, that way, than direct 4k gaming on a 4k display? 'Cos if it is, then it might make sense to buy the 8k display, run it at 6k for the time being, and save up for a *truly* 8k-capable graphics card/machine at a later point.
    (Says the guy who still runs his 4k monitor at 1920x2080 'cos he *still* can't afford that amazing super-new 1060ti graphics card! =:o} (Or the laser eye surgery to make it worth having the higher resolution anyway... =:o\ ) )

    Yeah dude adapters suck balls. I use the HDMI to Display Port cable for my 4K TV because the adapter, even though it claimed 60hz, would only allow 30hz and NO HDR. Though, 4K gaming on my old ass 1070 is not an option.

    I can only find HDMI>Displayport cables that support 4k 60hz

    Linus your adapters failed becouse every time you alter the signal it becomes weaker. Wich is why you only got 50hz.
