Gimme 60 fps first, better lighting and effects second, more objects on screen third, and resolution last. I definitely realize the benefit of higher res displays but the returns on resolutions over 2K are so, so small comparative to 480 to 1080p.

With 20/20 vision, you have to be within 5 feet of a 40 inch display for 4K to yield benefit over 1080p. You have to be within 3 feet of a 60 inch display to get the full benefit of 4K.

Personally, I would like to up to a 4K projector in a few years, as I can definitely see individual pixels on 1080p within 9 feet from my screen (120 inches).

(640 x 480) 480p is 307200 pixels
(1920 x 1080) 1080p is 2073600 pixels
That is a 6.75 times increase in pixel count going from 480p to 1080p.
(3840 x 2160) 4k is 8294400 pixels.
A 4x increase over 1080p.
(5120 x 2880) 5k is 14745600 pixels.
A 7.1 times increase in pixel count when going from 1080p to 5k.
Clearly, 4k is not as impressive of a jump going from a 480p - 1080p, but it is also much easier to drive.
A more accurate comparison is going from 1080p to 5k, percentage scaling wise.



5K Anyone?

Not exactly comfortable looking. It's not meant as a consumer product anyway, enterprise solutions for now.

Yeah, RIP 4k.



I'll take your 8K and add it to my 401K :)



Lube Me Up

I imagine 8k, or maybe 16k will be the end of increasing resolution. At 16k, even with a 70 inch screen, you'll have as high pixel density as I have on my iphone. And while my iphone isn't the most impressive piece of tech screenwise, it is usually tops 50 cm away from me. Even just by doubling the distance to a meter would mean you got 4 times as many pixels covering the same field of view, and who on earth are only a meter away from their TV?

Maybe someone with obscene amounts of money will do 32k for the luls, but I really don't think you'll be able to tell at that point.
