4k is IMAX resolution isnt it?

what crazy people need a true 1:1 IMAX film to watch at home? thats crazy


Wow, IMAX is pretty weak if that's the case.


Imax is closer to 18000 horizontal based on what google turned up. That was the highest estimate I saw, the lowest was 10000 horizontal so "4k" is nothing in comparison.

4k Res is just gonna be a gimmick that dies out like 3D did


And even if it isn't a gimmick, it'll be a decade at minimum before it's even casually adopted. of course the technophiles will jump on it and sit twiddling their thumbs for content just like they did with 3D, meanwhile 98% of consumers continue to not give a damn. i would bet that at least half this country doesn't even have a 720 tv yet, let alone 1080, now they're supposed to jump on 4k? please. normal people simply don't care that much about the visual fidelity of their tv.


Where's the half that doesn't even have 720P at? I don't remember the last time I've walked into a house without a flat screen in it. People who receive food stamps have HDTVs. SDTV has been phased out of everywhere other than goodwill. Plus you can find 32" 1080PHDTVs with 120Hz for 200 dollars, or less used.

I honestly could care less for 4K. I'm sure it looks nice but... whatever.


COULDN'T. COULDN'T care less. Jesus christ, it's not that difficult.

And 4K will take time to be the standard, even for video games. My PC can play games at 1080p across multiple monitors, but still has a bit of slowdown on more graphically intensive games. There's no way a ~$300 console will be able to effectively push 4K for quite a while unless it wants to look like crap.

Unless they can get 4k tvs to about $250 for a 24", I can't see it catching on. On that note, on a screen that size, would 4k even be a noticeable difference from 1080?


Only if you were about six inches from the TV.

When would someone 6 feet away from the 4K TV even be able to notice the difference between it and 1080p, size-wise?

I have a hard time imagining the common person really noticing on even a 40" unless they were looking for it.

Wii U uses HDMI 1.4.
HDMI 1.4 supports 4k resolution.
Thereby developers can make games supporting 4k resolution.

4k resolution is coming and coming fast. Sony's XBR-84X900 4K LED TV $24,999.99. Yeah wow that's expensive, but it's a good sign. within 4 years these things will be pricing closer to $2,500. Not to mention feature stripped versions in the $1,000 dollar range. At least 1080P won't look like crap in 4k TVs like 480p does on HDTVs.


In four years, Nintendo will likely be showing us their next console.

And I wouldn't expect 4k support out of the AMD APU's and HD6670's out of the PS4 and 720, either.

Why not? My old 7600GT could do 4k.

Also, lolz@SATA drives. You see, they make these things called "heat," which kills consoles.

Based on average pixel density, a 4k TV would have to be 120" or bigger in order to see the benefit from six feet, based on 20-20 vision and a 200ppi pixel density.

This chart says you're wrong.
It also uses the garbage standards of common peasantry. "20-20" vision is pretty bad according to this chart.
