84-inch 4K TV running Skyrim and Avatar

Website PCGH.de captured a video that showcases a 4K TV display from LG which costs 20.000 Euros. They play Skyrim on the LCD and show Avatar in 3.840 x 2.160 pixel (4k). (PC, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim)

Wow, it looks really good in this poxy little 720p youtube vid.

Yeah, off screen footage in a horribly lit room really brings it to life too.

Don't believe the Hype!
1. Stupid idiots! Learn to use FRAPS or an alternative and record on SCREEN!

2. FAILURE = Non 4K recording camera, You-Tube is not 4K, my monitor is not 4K so just exactly how am I gonna experience the fidelity of 4K?

3. 4k is total hype made up by TV manufactures to trick consumers into thinking they need to yet again run out and buy another $5000 TV (estimated price of 4k TV's once prices fall from the current level of $20K)

4. 4K only benefits TV's that are 60" or bigger by adding more pixels to raise the level of fidelity.

5. once 1080p was reached there were plans for 1600p and 2K but TV manufactures knowing this is all CRAP decided for a bigger jump to 4k and a future jump to 8K

6. have fun cause 4k will be all compressed to hell when they begin 4K broadcasting which right now DOES NOT exist anywhere.

7. The increasing resolutions of TV's only allow you to have a Larger screen and see more details while sitting further away.

So a 100" 4k TV viewed at 20 feet will be just as good as a 30" 1080p TV viewed at 6 feet!

1/2. agree, although youtube does host some 4k content. ex: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

3. http://www.youtube.com/watc... prices are going to drop like rocks.

4. My eyes don't see that to be the case, but your probably reiterating what someone on the internet said.

5. 2k is barely bigger than 1080p. So close that 1080p is considered one of the 2k resolutions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

6. http://mashable.com/2013/01... (already this year)
http://www.reuters.com/arti... (next year)

7. so I should have stuck sitting 15 feet from my 20" SD TV /s...again I doubt you have seen one if you claim their is no difference.

I play PS3 exclusives, and most MP games on my PS3. I play the Witcher series, Bioshock 1, Gears 1, Crysis series, Mass Effect series, AC series, Halo 1/2, UT, various Bethesda games, L4D, TF, portal, MMOs, and several emulators each with their own collections on PC.

Calling me a liar just shows that you are in denial. Get over it, and go find yourself a PC gaming site while your at it.

Don't act so oblivious running with statements like that. I never even meet my dad. That was the last straw. You are blocked on my end just as well.

So there is a video of people watching a TV with a resolution higher than we can view it on 720p anybody else see how pointless this is?
SITH  +   440d ago
On top of that, the commentary is in German.
Bimkoblerutso  +   440d ago
Yeah, no disrespect to zuh Germans, but this is an English-speaking website. Plus Google translation doesn't help AT ALL most of the time, so what's the point?

It's just one more sign that the approval process is totally bunk.

I don't think the video is meant to make us see how beautiful 4K is or verify that the display is indeed 4K, it is accompanies the fact that there is a 4K display running. I think it is just boring to say they demoed a 4K TV in plain text.
FlameBaitGod  +   440d ago
Um 4k resolution ... you can see how much FOV increases, you cant see that much in 1080p. If you couldn't even tell that then LAWL.

I'm curious as to how they connected the TV to a PC. If it is via HDMI 1.4 it is limited to 30Hz at 3840x2160, and thus far I have not seen any of these 4K tvs with DisplayPort.
xzendor7  +   440d ago
From the specs at LG's site this TV supports HDMI 1.4 and RGB In (D-sub 15pin) - PC
ExCest  +   440d ago
Is this even rendering at 4K or is it just some 1080p upscale? EDIT: Okay , they're using a 7970 so Skyrim might be in 4K. And just like comment above, how'd they connect it? HDMI is a breed that is bound to die within the decade and leave way for DisplayPort.

I know that Avatar isn't in 4K.

Well HDMI 2.0's specs are expected to release soon and it should offer enough bandwidth to support 4K at 60Hz, but for now DisplayPort is definitely superior for high resolutions.
