8k playable? I won't play games below 50FPS or so, and prefer 60FPS. I would wager about 20 years with my pickiness, especially for a single GPU computer. Even 4k is not exactly playable on a single GPU currently, it'll probably be 5-10 years before a single GPU can even maintain 60FPS at 4k on 95% of modern games.
I'd also debate if hardware will ever reach that fast until/unless new technology is discovered. They really seem to be struggling with advancement lately, planning massive improvements and then having to scale them way back each generation. The last 3 generation of processors for example are pretty dang close to each other.
Also 8k @ 24 inches? Why? Even with 4k, you will be able to play on a screen nearly the size of your wall and it'll still be insanely sharp. I don't even think you could tell the difference of 4k vs 8k until over 100" or so, and i'd think it'd be minor until about 150". Diminishing returns of even 1440p on 24" are pretty high.
