      @KrosshairBlue after gaming in 4k a couple years then going back to see a game in 1080p is literally worse than going from HDMI back to A/V cables. 1080p is still fine for laptop gaming but any screen bigger than that it's very noticeable.

      @KrosshairBlue ill only increase the resolution if im getting a bigger monitor, if my new monitor (27") wasnt bigger than my old one (24") i wouldve gotten it in 1080, but 1440p fits 27 inch better

    Trust me I render scenes in flight simulators at 4k, you need to look at the little things, like leaves moving, blowing in the wind, the tree's swaying, and the shadows of those trees also swaying, magazine ejecting from the gun, and possibly the recoil of that weapon, and other such stuff, shadows are a good give away. it's the little things that move if they don't it's not 4 or 8k. Our simulator at work is true 4k running 9 monitors for a Boeing 737-800NG, and it has 6 computers sharing 4x RTX 8000 grade graphic cards in it just to make it work.

    Since u had it locked at 60fps u were not seeing full 8k, probably 6k and as low as 4k for intense scenes because this gpu cant handle 8k 60fps. So whats happening is the game is downscaling to lower resolutions to maintain 60fps, what u have to do is unlock the frame rate for actual 8k.

  • Scott Summers
    Scott Summers 11 months ago

    I’m watching on a 1792x828 cellphone screen. I can see the quality jumps between the gaming and the cut scenes. Resolution is not the factor making them jump, it’s more likely compression/render quality. If resolution was the sole attribute contributing to quality I would not be able to perceive quality jumps on my less than 1080p screen. Friendly reminder to people, movies in theatre’s are watched mostly in 2k but are massive Dpx files while we watch 4k in the most heavily compressed settings at home, which look like trash in comparison. We have surpassed our ability to perceive resolution changes at most relevant viewing distances. These companies are using resolution as a marketing tool.

    8k has a LONG way before competitive gaming.
    Excellent story-like-mode for 8k, but that's about it. Maybe another 10-years and 8k will be respectable for gaming... Maybe even 20-years, since hardware is a bit slow on advancing the tech, so unless software can do some magic(UE5?), I think 8k is far away.

    • fernando alarcon
      fernando alarcon 4 months ago

      8k comes out this year. Considering the 4060 is projected to have around 24tflops of graphical power and that will retail for under 400 usd the 4090 is expected to produce over 50 Tflops which is more than enough for 8k gaming.

    • Vladimir Putin
      Vladimir Putin 6 months ago

      I think the 3090Ti is going to make some advancements towards it, but won't quite get us there. the next generation of cards should be all we need to take us up to 8k seen as the current 3090 could keep somewhere close to 60fps, but I agree about waiting to use it competitively. higher refresh rates are probably a ways off, not just due to graphics demand but also other hardware like the display and cable/connector. uncompressed 8K demands literal gigabytes of data per second even on 60fps, getting to 144fps will use about 14.5 terabytes every hour.

      @MrCan98 8k is also magical. It's probably just so sharp, but 360 hz is always better then 8k. Refresh rate and frame rate will always be more important then resolution, unless your resolution is lower then 1080p

    • vidkid666
      vidkid666 2 years ago

      @joshentertainment 2 Depending on the technology, such as upscaling and how a device handles media in those situations, the image can look better than your max resolution when it is downscaled. This is the idea behind DLSS. While it may work, you're not getting 4K quality just a scaled down version of a higher quality image. Watching a 4K video on a 1440p screen and watching it on a 4K screen is noticable. I have both a 1440p and 4k monitor beside each other on my desk, and I can attest to this.
      Outside of that fact, most devices are locked to only output video at the max capabilities of your screen and GPU.
      That's why you don't have the option for 8K resolution on a 2080Ti and can't set 4K resolution on a 1440p monitor. The GPU isn't capable and neither is the monitor.

    • vidkid666
      vidkid666 2 years ago

      @iPain Specifically in regards to Control, that IS real 8K. The scaling technique you're referring to is called DLSS, which you can turn off. Marques didn't do it for this video, but you can turn that option off.
      You'll take a major drop in performance playing in 4K without AI upscaling, let alone 8K.
      With DLSS on at 8k and render resolution set to 5K, he was barely doing 30fps and that's with no action on the screen.
      Still, it's a massive leap and even with DLSS disabled, it's true 8K gaming.

      Yeah it's a weird situation really, watching these kind of videos. They show you but it's not the actual thing that they see. So actually you have to listen what they say instead of what you see, cuz technically you're seeing all the same.
      For me it's 1440p. So it doesn't matter when he says it's now 4k or 8k or 16k. All I can see is the same. You try to notice the stuff that he tells, all the dirt, droplets etc. But actually you can't see them as he is. :)

      @pastamatt you may be right, but when I try to upload 20 minute videos in 4k it seems, in general, they take 4-5 days to fully process.
      I just gave up and I only load up 1080p now, even though I record in 4k and 2K.

    • pastamatt
      pastamatt 2 years ago +1

      @Redbone Unincorporated, really? I doubt it will be that bad. My longest upload processing was about 18 hours for a 45 minute-long 4K video before it was viewable in 4K. I'm guessing that at 4 times the pixels, but 1/3rd the video length, this will be viewable in 8K within about 2 days. But there are so many variables that I don't know how to account for when I guess.

    I can't wait for the 3090 ti to come out or even the 4090 to come out so you can see if running 5k render resolution on control is possible because holy moly the render resolution upgrade was insane and 8k gaming and 5k render resolution was literally real life

    I can safely say that the RTX 3090 is not capable enough to handle smooth 60+ fps gaming on 8k or even 4k for that matter. Forza has this thing where it dynamically reduces graphics quality settings so it can reach that 60 fps that you have set

    Got myself a RTX 3090 as well, and this GPU is really nice. Textures look really good, but in most games IMHO still need some developing. Although resolution gets higher and higher, this still look most of the times “artificial”.

      Textures are outdated to till this day , textures render at 720p blurry and not enough tesselation is there, lots of improvements needs to be done to achieve photo realism.

    Do we really need 8k gaming, 4k gaming at 60 fps is more than enough but MKBHD is so happy about 8k Gaming. May be if we wait for few more years he will review 16k gaming in his dreams.

    Dude what camera was that , you used even at 2160P 4k I can still see every little detail of the light on your skin and every granular detail of the chair your sat on... something tells me if this had been recorded at 4k I wouldn't of seen those details at the distance you are from the camera but like Linus said when you record a video at a higher resolution than the final render it does wonders for the quality! my current build is gateway 4k but I'm planning on getting an RTX3070 in the new ROG STRIX pc i'm slowly building part by part (saving for each component individually!)
    and apparently the 3070 is at least 8k capable from a media standpoint may be not so much in gaming so maybe I can at least re-run this video in 8k (when the ultrafast FTTP reaches my door that is, i'm planning on the 500mb/s package which should handle viewing 8k), now I know that my 4k monitor isn't 8k one but when I changed from 1080p to 2160p before I got this 4k monitor on my old 1080p monitor I still noticed a clarity difference even though it felt like looking through I mosquito net on real life that was the difference
    lower resolutions feel like a digital screen made up of pixels but the higher the res of the screen and the video the more it starts to feel like your looking through a window!
    which is why i'm hoping for a new technology (potentially from Microsoft after all they do own windows and it would be ironic, not to mention their augmented reality glasses technology)
    so I propose an idea I call the Microsoft Window Monitor or MWM for short a display that not only is 8k but has a special feature that would be unique... using their sensor technologies (which I know Microsoft has)!
    The feature I speak of would be a monitor with sensor around the frame that detects the users position... i've seen Bruce Dell and his company in Australia use a similar technology in a special pair of 3d glasses so it's not beyond our current capabilities and certainly not Microsoft basically the sensor detects where you are an adjusts the positioning of what's on the screen depending where the user is and calculating the angles based in Realtime,
    This combined with a layer similar to those 3d glasses but on the screen itself and the 8k resolution would literally give the person at the screen a sense that they are looking into a Window as they move their head the environment be it 3d game or real life (taken with special cameras) would provide an alternative to those not as interested in vr!
    the technology for higher resolution VR has proven difficult thus far and highly expensive for both consumers and the companies that make them even today the price doesn't appear to be coming down
    but tv's are a static object they do not need to move and the sensors would be detecting the viewer instead of the surrounding area and 8k technology is easier to make for a screen than a VR set... I do propose another option should Microsoft not be interested... the Portal Monitor based off the popular video game franchise perhaps even with the option of lights to be adjusted for an orange or light blue colour to give a similar effect (but rectangular ofc)
    some of you might find it stupid but who knows maybe not every body does, I know full well it's possible and if it turns out to be easier to manufacture than high res vr then who knows it might end up being a cheaper alternative in the future, but i'm getting ahead of myself rome wasn't built in a day I know theres technologies out there that do something similar I did see linus test such a 3d tv but that didn't use the method I mentioned!
    i'm talking about the digital side doing the work running a predictive algorithm to calculate the correct angle of the room and objects displayed on the screen not the same as the one Linus got to see which was more of a physical solution which involved a multilayer glass that went into the more holographic direction!
