8K Benchmarking: Part Two
I started off our 8K benchmarking articles by throwing the visual settings in all of our games up into Ultra, just because I'm used to doing that - but if you want playable framerates at 8K, super high-end graphics aren't going to let you get there.
This is why we're back with some new testing, and some crazy insane TITAN Xp SLI results ($4000 worth of graphics cards), all at 7680 x 4320. I've gone over just how incredible 7680 x 4320 is, but if you need the refresher course, check it out. I've been using the Dell UP3218K monitor for a couple of weeks now, with the 8K display being my workstation daily driver and I've got nothing but praise for it.
If you've forgotten just how balls-to-the-wall 8K is in terms of raw pixel numbers, this is the image that you need to cry yourself to sleep with at night.... I know I do.
Yeah... I get the reaction; it happens to me, too. 8K is monstrous, so much so that you can't run 100% DPI scaling in Windows 10, it's just too small. You can't even see the date and time, or text - it's amazing in terms of desktop real estate of course.
Native 8K videos look absolutely sublime. I could really sit there for hours just pouring myself into the display. It's like looking into a portal of a new world that somehow looks better than the real one. Thought I was joking? Comment here after you've seen 8K video at 60FPS on the Dell UP3218K, and if you say you can't tell the difference, or it's not some of the most amazing clarity, depth of color, and crispness - I'll buy you lunch.
