    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.

                  You could even have 120 Hz, using the technique "temporal anti-aliasing". The app would merge all 4 frames into one (average color per pixel) and send only 30 Hz to the monitor. But the human eye can't see the difference between the real and the "fake" 120 Hz. This technique is best when simulating the shutter speed of a classic movie camera: Doing the sampling only in one-half of the frame. Too bad that no software supports this, although it's easy to implement.

                            Low FPS diminishes the returns IMO. Tech isn't far behind though soon enough 8K will be possible and have good FPS. I think it is the new TV's that are not meant for this purpose that are killing your framerates We are not far off from 8K monitors However I feel 4K is more crisp because it is much more smooth because of the refresh rates for now. The tech is close though and I love your experiment thanks for showing what is currently possible with disposable income. P.S. I love the videos and Info you pass on please keep going man I knew tons in the past and present but I learn lots from you @Linus Tech Tips Thanks for always pushing the bar We APPRECIATE YOU!!!!!

'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.
