Yep, essentially this is the first true 4k 60fps-120fps+ hit everything to max and forget about it card (at least on todays games). The price is insane but man will this drive an OLED 4k 120hz screen and then some.

Going to save myself nearly £2k by pretending the Windows version of Sim City 2000 is the current peak of technological advancement* and playing it in a maximised window. 4k**/uncountable framerate on a potato, here we go!

 

*and let's be fair, it's still the peak of city builders

**well, ~2.5k on my ultrawide

I mean, it's not going to run Risk of Rain 2 any better than my current set up.


Sure, but psychologically speaking it will clearly be better because it’s running on a 4090.

 

It’s basic maths ;)

Apparently they'll go on sale around 2PM which is when i HaVe A mEeTiNg (#vip), so they'll all be sold by the time I get back to the computer anyway. Plus, I don't have an ATX3 PSU which isn't needed at all, but this is what I'm like. I need to get a diary to write all this down really, but this thread benefits a bit from my electro-consumerist angst, I think.

 

 

Yeh, that makes sense then as saying 9am EST / 6am PT over here.

 

I was worried I was going to wake up on the West coast and you all would have snaffled them . But like you @Lying CatI also have a meeting (dial in only), 6am as luck would have it, so I shall be ready to go when it kicks off.

 

Good luck all! :)

8K gaming, at the risk of sounding like Bill Gates talking about 640k I honestly cannot see the point. Madness. I hope it doesn't catch on. You need a microscope to see the pixels on a 4K monitor.

 

Seeing as there's still a general lack of 4k stuff on standard tv, I'm baffled by anyone buying an 8k tv at the moment. Bonkers.

Thanks, you reminded me of the hype I had for Sim City and the crushing disappointment of the reviews...

On the upside, if we're shooting for 8K at the top end now, it won't be long before the lower, more "affordable" cards are capable of ripping through 4k. But yeah, it seems that unless you have a 120"+ telly and sit uncomfortably close to it, 8K is just... a bit useless. I guess you can turn down the anti-aliasing a bit? I guess I just always think about those cinema's with 4K projectors and it always looks great.

 

And those are pretty big screens.

I think the first batch of cards is going to very quickly. The reviews have been stellar, and despite the huge price it's such a clear jump from the 3090s I'm not pinning much hope of getting one tomorrow.

Same, gonna try my best.

 

Got the S95B OLED set up and MY GOD. Its like I can see colour. Having the CX side by side with it was absolute fukking murdah. I'll play babby PS5 on it until I get the 4090 FE

I had some cards on top of my laptop lol but samsung on the right. Shitty phone camera can't capture the difference. It's amazing. Posted this for @Lying Cat and his deep desk set up fetish.

That looks way too bright and is losing loads of detail though (compare where the honey is meeting the...big yellow bit at the bottom middle of the screen).

 

Is this the first Samsung OLED?

Phone pic isn't what is representative of whats on screen. W-Oleds do overall lack the potential brightness and saturation due to the nature of their tech as opposed to quantum dot. 

 

The most colour accurate and high quality TV on the market right now is quantum dot oled based.

I am so out of the tv tech game, I recognise the words 'screen' and 'brightness' there :lol: What's a W-OLED, what is a quantum dot and which tv has which?

 

I actually quite like Samsung stuff (my tv is a Samsung plasma still and I like their phones), plus I imagine it's cheaper than an LG OLED too, so if it is good perhaps it could be a treat for myself at Christmas.

This video explains the tech well :)

 

 

 

Samsung are know to over saturate out of the box but I like things with a little bit more pop even it its not strictly accurate because I'm mainly going to gaming on this than movie watching. Will definitely tinker with the settings for the most natural pic that still looks nicely vivid.

Having watched that, he does seem keen, though I'm still not sure I prefer the brightness, and for me the interesting comparison shot was the mountain with the cloud over it; on the WOLED it looked like it was going to rain, whereas the QDOLED is far less threatening. They are actually so different I wouldn't even be able to say which is the 'correct' look and colour representation versus the naked eye, which I find fascinating in itself. And I still think you are losing a lot of the detail (you can make out the individual clouds much easier on the WOLED and detail on the mountain). 

 

Obviously the WOLED does look darker outside of that, so it's all a trade-off I suppose. It's interesting though, because whilst I think I get what he is explaining there about the tech (well, most of it), to me - based on looking at a paused youtube video on my laptop screen - the WOLED looks more natural and detailed, even though the video is telling me that, factually, the QDOLED is giving a lot better colour representation.

I'd probably just take away from the tech element of how light and colour reprentation makes it on the screen. Unfortunately a YouTube video watched on another screen won't relay the true differences of the screen tech without seeing them in person. It's like watching a hdr source on a non hdr screen, you just won't get the actual picture representation other than one looks brighter and more saturated! Both are amazing tech will be interesting to see how the next gen of tvs fare.
