    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.

I don’t think gaming will really benefit from being 8K unless your playing on a 20 plus foot screen... on top of it while there’s a huge jump 1080p to 4K I’m still amazed at how good 1080p looks even on a 75” display... I’m looking forward to getting a PS5 and having it drive my Sony 900e and using its full potential.
