[PCWorld]AMD shows off Vega's ability to handle 8K graphics at NAB - Page 3

post #21 of 68
slightly used gtx1080 for sale the day Vega comes out, and then I will pray to the great golf gods to keep AMD pushing nvidia
and as a bonus I'll sell my asus pg278, get something a bit cheaper and be able to have a coffee again

Wooo! NAB on the frontpage. My company has one of the top 5 largest booths there. I went to Vegas a few years back, its an amazing exhibition of technology.

Japan/Korea are mandating 8K broadcast (which makes sense) as they want to drive innovation for their 8K displays.

edit: NAB (National Association of Broadcasters) show drives sales and sets the stage for the year...

For instance, the biggest players in the field:

The prosumer space is budding as well, due to Youtube content creators and such...

If this survey is correct 4K is used by 0.78% and growing at a rapid pace (+0.09%).
1080p with only 45% and regressing (+2%)

Wait...


Vega as an architecture seems promising but damn this 1440p screen and all the excess power Vega brings. I hate high frame rates!

25.05 release date confirmed!

That would be clever and fits with this quarter...

Not that it matters since youtube makes it low quality after uploading.

It's more than just encoding though, gpu encoding can be a benefit but not nearly as much as gpu acceleration while working on your files. I think GPU acceleration for output is more common with 3d rendering than encoding.

8K for television and home movie viewing is ridiculous.

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/articles/visual_acuity.htm

Not only is it ridiculous from the point of view of human vision, it's ridiculous in terms of:

A) Not needing to see extra detail from people's nose hairs, wrinkles, and moles.

B) Ridiculous bandwidth requirements. Good luck watching even plain non-HD Netflix on capped broadband without paying ridiculous amounts. Where I live I have the choice between capped satellite and cellular. Don't ask how much 30 gigabytes per month costs, let alone the average of 60 we were using at our old place when we had cable. That was with very little Netflix, practically no HD Youtube, etc.

C) Ridiculous encoding times.

D) Ridiculous file sizes.

16K is needed for perfect VR because the screen is extremely close to the eyeballs. For television 8K is not needed. There are things that are needed, like wide color gamut, high contrast, lack of motion blur, perfect uniformity, low-as-possible input lag, lack of reflections, long phosphor life, high-quality audio, etc.

Shrinking OLED pixels for 8K is going to reduce lifespan even more, too. Corporations want everyone to be convinced that they need 8K because they've tried to speed up planned obsolescence with all this pixel-pushing — to hysterical levels. We had standard definition forever but, suddenly, we need a new television set every few years. Instead of just making HD 720 then 1440 we had the stupid 1080 standard, which had resolution that was too low. Now that we are getting 4K, which is more than enough for television and home film viewing, we're supposed to need double that. BS.

I agree with all of that.

If they were able to get things up to 4k I think we would be fine until we start having crazy wireless vr style glasses that we watch everything on.
