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.
