4K must be getting close to a retina display.

Someone verify?

I don't think we need to go passed 4k for a little while.


Retina doesn't actually mean anything so yeah.

Well now, that depends on the size of the monitor itself, the monitor would have to be roughly between 14.5" and 20" to reach the same PPI than a Retina display, which range between 220 and 326 PPI.


You don't need 326DPI to reach the same effect on a monitor because you're usually viewing the screen from a much larger distance. 220PPI is pretty much retina display quality for monitors.

Retina display is just a marketing term. It effectively means high enough pixel density so that you can't see the actual pixels from a an average viewing distance and angle.

To answer the original question. The successor to 4k is 8k and already is being used in some professional applications. Sharp had an 8k tv at this years CES. It's four times 4K, which is 4 times 1080p. Over 32 million pixels. It would be awesome to one day gaming at that resolution on a 30" display. So much pixel density.

Everything that matters.

Resolution is great because it can potentially show more detail but what about color accuracy, shadow detail, and black levels?

OLED.

Would be nice to see display manufacturers give more focus on this.

The thing is, resolution war between them is yet to be over. 4k is just starting its baby crawl in the mainstream consumer scene, but 8k is already in the works. Certain broadcasting stations even already own some experimental 8k filming equipment and they're only willing to wait 4-6 years more before they go.

It's for a good reason though. According to those who watched an 8k display in NHK's front office, the sense of reality is stunning, as if the display itself is window to the other side. If it's applied in games and they shrink the display down to 30-50" with 400+dpi, we won't need AA anymore.

Hopefully 8k will be the point when these companies see diminishing returns on resolution, and we can go back to color, contrast and blacks.

8K, it already exists behind the scenes


How? We see real life in 4k, so how would 8k work?
