Amazing new gear
Suddenly that 5K iMac doesn’t seem so impressive, but you’d need a serious TV cabinet!
What is it? 4K TVs are so last year. If you really want to be at the bleeding edge of display technology, you’ll need to go a bit better than that. Just as well, then, that Sharp has announced that it’s working on an 85-inch 8K TV that will set you back a cool £86,000. Suddenly that 5K iMac doesn’t seem so impressive, but you’d need a serious TV cabinet to house this one! When’s it due? TBC. Why are we excited? High resolution displays are developing at an astonishing rate, with previously impressive resolutions moving further and further down the scale. But do we need 8K? Is it even practical? Probably not, but we’re geeks so it’s already given us sweaty palms and heart palpitations.
