So, just putting some probes out, but is anyone here interested in 8k, or are people satisfied / overwhelmed by 4k.

I am not just talking about gaming, I am sure that the PC scene will be there pretty soon.
But for media consumption / creation, productivity, photography, bragging rights and future proofness.

Does anyone here already have a 4k panel, and if so what have been your impressions on the increased pixel count.


As for me, I love it.
I will be getting an 8k display as I am able to get a good quality, 8k HDR OLED monitor for ~$1000.
I have enjoyed my 4k monitor for over two years (perhaps even three) now, but I wish I had spent more money, and got a higher quality panel.
That is something I won't repeat again.

UI scaling is pretty bad, Steam on Linux does not scale to 4k, and I have to sit real close to read text, and there are more examples I could bring up (but cannot be bothered to confirm to see if that is still the case).

Playing games in 4k is pretty incredible, not perfect but if you are used to 720p, 900p or 1080p, you will surly will notice the clarity (unless you are blind).

Don't bother with Youtube's 4k video, that sucks.
Digital Foundry's videos are pretty good though, when they aren't doing console stuff.

 

You'll wait yeaaaars until you get a 4K HDR Oled monitor for $1000 let alone a 8K one, try again maybe in 2037.

Besides 4K is overrated, people barely see any difference between checkerboarding and da true 4k unless you're less than a meter away and pixel counting. HDR is where it's at and the only place HDR truly shines right now is with consoles. HDR barely works and supported on PC last I heard. Is strange all this hype for 4k but then comes HDR from nothing and is the real next gen upgrade.

"Digital Foundry's videos are pretty good though, when they aren't doing console stuff."

It's pretty much all they produce tho, with maybe some graphics card tests, their consoles videos along with their retro console videos are da best.

But yeah, my next display upgrade would be a 4K HDR OLED TV, heard they're actually also starting to become decent monitors too.

I want ALL THE Ks! I even shop at K-Mart and get my gas from Circle K. My favorite band is Reliant K.

 

And I have a 4K TV.

1. There are currently no plans for consumer level 8K  OLED screens.

 

2. The only announced 8K screen (Dell) is priced at $5000; five times your shamefully minsinformed price estimate.

 

3. Using an OLED as a computer monitor or gaming TV is beyond ignorant, due to the obscene levels of burn-in OLEDs suffer from. If you truly desire a self-emitting screen, wait for QLEDs to take their next step.

8K is ridiculous. Even 4K is currently a huge waste for how little it offers.



720.
My pc screen resolution is 768p.



Around the Network

Currently I'm running a 22 inch 16:10 1050p (1680×1050) monitor and plan to upgrade at the end of this year (when I get a new PC) to a 34 inch 21:9 1440p (3440x1440) monitor

I honestly don't currently see the need to go to 4K over 1440p unless you are using like a 32+ inch 16:9 or 40+ inch 21:9 monitor unless you do a lot of creative work on your PC or something. Diminishing returns limit the overall benefits, there still isn't a whole lot of native 4K content, and the performance hit you take from 4K while gaming simply isn't worth it (I'd rather push 100+FPS).



Bets:

1. If the Wii U sells closer to 10 million LTD by 1/3/2015 I win. If it sells closer to 9.5 million LTD by 1/3/2015 OfficerRaichu15 wins (winner gets 2 weeks of avatar control)--Lost.

HDR is apparently where it's at apart from the other two resolutions.



                                       

It's funny how people like to brag about their display size...and yet it's never enough.



Just bought a 144hz 1080p panel for online games.

Maybe a few years down the road could see myself upgrading to 144hz 4k.

After experiencing 144hz i feel as though it should be the gold standard for pc gaming. Honesty cant look back.

144hz 4k is the dream. I've heard there is a 4k HDR on the way as well, but it sounds to be quite expensive. 

 

I've ordered a 165hz 1440p monitor as I couldn't find a decent 1080p one that fit what I was looking for. I imagine I won't be going back either as I've wanted to take the dive for some time now.
