Mass Effect 3 teased at 8K, a huge 7680x4320 - will melt your PC

If you thought playing Mass Effect 3 at 1080p was hard, what about 4K? That's old hat when you look at these 8K screenshots

We've already entered the world of 8K gaming thanks to Crysis being hacked to run at the insanely high resolution, but now someone has taken a screenshot of Mass Effect 3 running at 8K, or 7680x4320.




7680x4320 sounds like a lot - and it is - it is 16 times the amount of pixels that Full HD pumps out at 1920x1080 - and nearly infinitely more than what next-gen consoles seem to be doing lately with their 792p or 900p gaming. Whatever game throws 8K at me, bring it - now we need some truly next-generation GPUs to drive these insane resolutions. I think we're edging close to a world where 8-12GB of VRAM will become the norm, and I for one, cannot wait.
