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.

  • Patrick

    There is no reason one person or at best a handful of people of people will ever need 8k resolution it's just a wild goose chase.

    7 years from now we’ll look back on this video on our $389 8K monitors and $1,200 8K gaming rigs and laugh at the hassle Linus went through to make it work, when all we had to do was make put the monitor near the graphics card and the magnetic fields are what connect the two and it works flawlessly.

      Ok this TV is so huge that I got the name "willie wibblesock" from the screen itself and after I dug a little bit I found the game is Anno 1800. I'm trully amazed on a daily basis about the quality of the techonology we do have nowadays.

  • Pitou

    i bet when they released this video Sharp™ were happy about the *almost* free advertisement. I mean they only sent them an 8k TV and said that it had no hassles. Now they are freaking out about how Sharp™ the TV is.
