Samsung's insane 85-inch 8K TV is $3500 cheaper in Black Friday sales

Anthony Garreffa | Nov 27, 2021 8:39 PM CST

If you want one of the very ultimate TVs on the market, well you're in luck -- Samsung has shaved a huge $3500 its beautiful, and gargantuan 85-inch Class QN800A Samsung Neo QLED 8K Smart TV.

This is the very latest 2021 model with the 8K side of things giving you a huge 7680 x 4320 @ 60Hz, while 4K is offered at a much-smoother 120Hz. In Samsung's own words: "Feel the power of every frame with 33 million pixels that provide an incredible sense depth and clarity, all with four times the resolution of 4K".

For watching 8K content you're going to be stretching it... there's no native 8K movies out, but there are plenty of gorgeous 8K videos on YouTube and then there's 8K gaming on the PC. I've run a bunch of 8K benchmarks across the years, and you're going to need (not just want) the very best graphics card you can find which is the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 with its 24GB of ultra-fast GDDR6X memory.

TCL CSOT debuts world's first 4K 240Hz monitor, yes... 4K 240FPS!

Anthony Garreffa | Nov 18, 2021 6:57 PM CST

We're only just getting comfortable in the world of 4K 120FPS gaming monitors thanks to the recent adoption of the newer HDMI 2.1 standard on the latest TVs... but now we have TCL blowing that out of the water with their new 32-inch 4K 240Hz gaming monitor.

TCL CSOT debuts world's first 4K 240Hz monitor, yes... 4K 240FPS! 01

Yeah, 4K at 240FPS.

TCL unveiled the new 32-inch UD 240Hz R800 "Gaming Display" which looks to be a plain-ish affair, with a curved 32-inch 4K panel of some sort. Is it LED, Micro-LED, or something else? I'm guessing we'll know soon enough, but we do know that TCL CSOT (TCL China Star Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd.) is making the 32-inch 4K 240Hz panel.

This is beyond anything else on the market right now, which has reached a line of around 4K 144FPS right now on the very latest displays. We should expect TCL to sell this bad boy in China at first, but I've recently come into contact with TCL for monitor reviews here at TweakTown and would love to have one of the first. Imagine a new 32-inch 4K 240Hz monitor and a next-gen GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card... 'cause you're going to need it.

The new MSI Optix MPG321UR-QD gaming monitor has a 32-inch IPS-based Quantum Dot panel, with a native 3840 x 2160 (4K) resolution and super-fast 144Hz refresh rate, all driven through its HDMI 2.1 connectivity.

But in traditional MSI fashion, we've got a series of "smart software based on years of professional experience in research and development of eSports and an understanding of the needs of players.

MSI announced some new gaming monitors today, with the introduction of the world's first 34-inch UltraWide gaming monitor using Mini-LED display technology.

MSI unveils world's first 34-inch UltraWide monitor with Mini-LED tech 04

The new MSI MEG Artymis 341 Mini LED is a new 34-inch UltraWide gaming monitor using an AUO amLED panel, with the curved 34-inch Mini-LED panel expected to have a native 3440 x 1440 resolution and I'm sure gaming-fast 144Hz refresh rate or more.

I'd be disappointed to see the world's first 34-inch UltraWide Mini-LED gaming monitor without HDMI 2.1 connectivity, but it wouldn't be the first time a high-end monitor didn't have HDMI 2.1 which enables 4K 120Hz, and lets you plug in next-gen consoles in the Microsoft Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.

The company uploaded a new product launch video that teases what MSI has coming in 2022 when it comes to its family of products: next-gen Z690 motherboards ready for Intel's just-launched 12th Gen Core "Alder Lake" CPUs, new AIO liquid coolers, gaming desktops, gaming monitors, and more.

MSI didn't detail but simply teased, it has a new 32-inch and 55-inch OLED gaming monitors (not TVs but "big-screen" gaming monitors) coming in 2022. The new MSI MEG 551U OLED looks absolutely gorgeous at the back -- where it counts when it comes to visual aesthetic -- where it looks exactly as I expected from MSI. I love the design style from the back, and the feet, too.

Acer's new Predator gaming projector: 4K movies, 1080p 240Hz gaming

Anthony Garreffa | Oct 14, 2021 12:26 AM CDT

Acer has just revealed its gaming-focused Predator GD711 gaming projector, which is capable of projecting 4K content, supports the next-gen Microsoft Series X/S and Sony PlayStation 5 consoles and can ramp up to a hefty 240Hz on the PC.

For gamers, the new Acer Predator GD711 gaming projector can blast out 1080p 120Hz on the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5 consoles with VRR, or up to 1080p 240Hz on the PC with High Frame Rate mode. We have 4000 LED lumens of brightness, high dynamic contrast, and HDR10 on the Acer Predator GD711 projector, too.

Acer has a throw ratio of 1.22 meaning you can get a large variety of screen sizes, with a huge 100-inch screen projected from just 2.7m (8.85 ft) away. There's a 10W speaker built-in for some basic audio, a remote control, and a wicked style on the outside. Acer says its new Predator GD711 gaming projector is good for up to 30,000 hours of use... which is actually pretty crazy.

Corsair Xeneon gaming monitor launched, a game-changer for Corsair

Anthony Garreffa | Sep 30, 2021 7:07 PM CDT

Corsair has just unveiled its first-ever gaming monitor, a new 32-inch 1440p 165Hz display that will cost $800. Check it out:

The new Corsair Xeneon has support for both AMD FreeSync and NVIDIA G-SYNC technologies, with Corsair tapping Quantum Dot technology, a 1ms response time, and up to 400 nits of brightness. There's thin bezels here which make for a perfect display for multi-monitor setups, but it seems no having the display in portrait mode. Disappointing... maybe with Corsair's Xeneon 2.0 monitor.

Corsair isn't right up to date as there's no HDMI 2.1 connectivity here, but there's no need when there's no 4K 120Hz support. Still, it would be nice to be able to have HDMI 2.1 here, but we do have 2 x HDMI 2.0 ports, 1 x DisplayPort 1.4a port, USB-C ports, 2 x USB 3.1 ports, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Your next TV should be this huge new 85-inch 4K 240Hz... yeah, 240FPS

Anthony Garreffa | Sep 19, 2021 7:08 PM CDT

AU Optronics has just unveiled a beautiful sight -- a gigantic 85-inch 4K TV but with an insane 240Hz refresh rate. We've already got multiple large 4K 120Hz gaming TVs but now there's an 85-inch 4K 240Hz (!!!) TV coming and man it is going to be a beast.

Your next TV should be this huge new 85-inch 4K 240Hz... yeah, 240FPS 01

The new 85-inch 4K 240Hz will need a next-gen GPU to run it, which will be perfect for AMD's next-gen RDNA 3 GPU architecture and the multi-chip Navi 31-based Radeon RX 7900 XT or NVIDIA's next-gen Ada Lovelace GPU architecture and the GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards.

You'll need a new graphics card with HDMI 2.1 or DisplayPort 2.0 with the HDMI 2.1 already on the Radeon RX 6000 and GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs, meanwhile DP 2.0 will debut with next-gen cards. If you're using HDMI 2.1 then you'll need DSC (Display Stream Compression) to reach the lofty heights of 4K 240Hz as HDMI 2.1 only supports 4K 144Hz without DSC.

LG's new 325-inch 8K TV costs $1.7 million, weighs over 2000 pounds

Anthony Garreffa | Sep 15, 2021 9:20 PM CDT

LG has just announced its new Direct View LED home cinema TVs that come in all different screen sizes and resolutions, with the flagship DVLED TV coming in a huge 325-inch size and 8K resolution that will cost you $1.7 million.

LG's new 325-inch 8K TV costs $1.7 million, weighs over 2000 pounds 04

Yes, $1.7 million -- but you're getting an absolutely gigantic, and I'm sure amazing picture out of the 325-inch 8K LG DVLED TV. It's so big that it weighs over 2000 pounds, so you won't be hiring a van and driving it out of your local retailer, you're probably going to need to call up Bruce Wayne and ask for a loan, and also a crane to install it into your house.

The 325-inch 8K TV also consumes a crazy amount of power, drawing up to 16,560W and runs damn hot too. Inside, you've got LG's in-house AI-powered a7 processor that intelligently optimizes image quality, and beautiful deep blacks that deliver those inky-black blacks, with LG saying that "enhanced color reproduction and more precise detail, thanks to an impressive 150,000:1 (@10 lux) contrast ratio".
