MANUFACTURERS ANNOUNCE THE ARRIVAL OF 8K!
Typical! As soon as we all get used to 4k, screen and panel manufacturers announce the arrival of 8k!

Manufacturers are investing a lot in the development of 8k equipment, and whether or not you see value in the new technology, that’s what they’re going to be pushing. For those still rooting for team 4k, the argument is that the law of diminishing returns will be in effect: you’re going to be paying quite a lot more for an 8k screen, for no real improvement.

But the difference, even on upscaled images (more on that shortly), is appreciable. A simple side-by-side comparison is all it takes to demonstrate the superiority of 8k.
