How hard is gaming at 8K resolution at 60FPS with a PC? It is more difficult at this stage than you might think.

Over the last few years, 4K resolution has slowly but surely made it's way to the mainstream in choice of screens both TV and PC monitor. 4K is made of 3840 x 2160 pixels at an aspect ratio of 16:9, which is four times the resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is what is classed as full high definition, or FHD. True 4K resolution should not be confused with quad high definition, or QHD for short, as that is a resolution of only 2560 x 1440 which is 4 times HD or 1280 x 720.

8K resolution is slowly taking over as the next wow factor for TVs and PC monitors. 8K resolution consists of four times 4K resolution or 7680 × 4320 pixels at an aspect ratio of 16:9. However, connecting up a monster of a gaming PC to an 8K display at 60FPS is not as easy as you might think, it's not a matter of plugging in an HDMI or Display port and you're good to go. First of all, you'll have to have four graphics cards that are able to handle 4K resolution, and each one needs to be connected individually to the TV via display port cables or HDMI cables. Then you'll have to go through your PC display settings and set your individual graphics cards as separate displays, but laid out as a mosaic – or four quadrants of the 8K TV or PC monitor – to make the overall 8K display seamless at a combination of four 4K displays.

It's complicated...
