GAMING on The First 8K TV!!!!

65 freakin' inches. And it has a breakout box! Currently it supports only HDMI 2.0, but eventually they will send buyers an upgraded box that supports 2.1. That's the advantage of a breakout box.

It took them some effort to get Windows to display at 8K, but you should see the desktop, it's insane. And then they run Cities: Skylines at a super zoomed-out angle, and you can still see the people running around. It sounds ideal for strategy, tactical and city-building games. They also run Forza, but you can't tell the difference through the YouTube video. They manage 30fps though, which is impressive. I'd like to know what hardware they are running.

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.

Sharp sent Linus a 70-inch 8K TV that can do 60Hz via four HDMI cables to try running some games on it. After a hell of a lot of hassle to get it working, he runs Anno 1800, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Rocket League, with about 20fps on average on a 2080 Ti equivalent (if I understood it correctly). It looks amazing, but it's not really playable for Shadow. The rest seems mildly playable. I wonder how much better you can do with a 2080 Ti SLI setup.

They SAID this would be EASY... - Gaming at 8K 60fps
