As the title says is ever higher pixel count better? even though your eyes have far less resolution. The video goes some way into explaining both,  and how much is just techno blurb and marketing hype. Tv manufacturers keep trying to tease us into buying the latest technology with ever more blurb, bigger screen, more pixels curved screen, smart and so on. I have a  Smart? Samsung 49" tv that is very nice to watch but the only 4k/8k  I watch is streamed from an online source mostly or my Gopro (4k) actioncam. I'm not convinced more is better just confused at times. the downside is the marketing hype gets me reaching for the credit card.   :(

8k seems overkill to me. 4k is great.
I use a 49inch 4k samsung tv as my main computer monitor (and my old 21inch monitors left and right of it - never again worry about screen estate.. :)
the only problem now is finding my mouse cursor  :fp: ;D

watching zooms on this is incredible.

using a tv is much cheaper than buying a 4k computer monitor.

Omg.... your eyes must be far apart ;D    I have a lowly 1920/1080 Phillips monitor that is about as big a footprint I can manage at the moment it has a nice sharp clear bright picture though I play my zoom videos and such on the Samsung TV. Nice speakers. :thumbs:

I'm using an Asus 28" 4K monitor,
and I also upgraded the GPU from a GTX760 to a GTX1060
since what I read seemed to imply that the old card
was MAYBE on the verge of usability.

The image quality definitely looks necessary in generating these fractals
(eg. making smooth edges).  8)
