not really amazon though, 3rd party vendor warranty would not apply. Amazon has it for almost 5K.

I don't think you can actually send an 8k signal at 120hz with current video port standards.

8K is dumb. 8K on a 65" is even dumber.

I actually have a 3090 (got lucky with evga queue in october) and I wouldn't even want to try pushing 8K. I've tested via supersampling and it's.. rough. Takes a lot of power. 4k60-120 with gsync on my LG CX is good enough for now.

Quote from James_bond003 :
8K, 10K, 12K are all dumb and mostly fake.
A human eye can't perceive that much resolution or tell the difference between them, so anything more than 3-4K resolution is just symbolic.
Also, human eye can't see more than certain frame per seconds, so 8K at 120Hz is just not possible. That too the statistics are for a very healthy human eye, which 90% of people don't have.
I finally saw someone use the "human eye can't see 120 FPS" comment in the wild!

This has been mostly debunked and is something that will still require much further research in the future. But, some people can detect flicker in images that have high contrast up to 500hz. Many people will point to the ability for the eye to track moving objects as a point for why you can't see more than 60hz. But, we are talking about perceiving a moving image on an image that is constantly refreshing while being backlit. The average person sees a huge difference in smoothness between 60hz and 120hz and likely higher.

You're right.. Same thing, I am also referring the scientific findings only.
Yes, people can say that there is some smoothness, some clarity and all, but it's not a huge difference, beside that like any other things they claim with respect to normal healthy eyes, so normal healthy eyes are not majority has.

8k makes more sense when you start blowing up the screen to 120" or more. Projectors will benefit with 8k when that becomes a standard in the market in the next 5+ years.

I'm trying to future proof though, so looking at 32K @ 960Hz. I heard Samsung just came out with one. Is $129,990.00 too much to spend on a 55" TV?

I have 3x 43-inch 4k Samsungs in portrait orientation on my desk. I sit about 30 inches from the center screens. If I used this one 65-inch 8k monitor, it would be like having 4 of my current 4k portrait screens with no bezels. There are people that could use 8k right now at this size. I have an LG Gram coming that is supposed to output 8k.... So I just might try it.
