LG Electronics has announced that its new ThinQ AI And Alpha 9 Gen 2 Processor use deep learning algorithms and artificial intelligence to analyze source content and enhance picture and sound based on ambient conditions. This technology will span multiple product lines of TVs from LG. The 8K TVs will feature OLED panels, HDMI 2.1 ports, high frame rate (HFR), clearer motion at 120 frames per second, variable refresh rate (VRR) as well as an automatic low latency mode (ALLM) for gamers. The price of the new televisions has not been announced at this time, but expect to see more coverage of the TVs at CES 2019.

And through the inclusion of HDMI 2.1 ports, all 2019 OLED TVs and select NanoCell TVs with ThinQ AI will support high frame rate (HFR). The result is smoother and clearer motion at 120 frames per second for better rendering of fast-action content such as sports and action movies. Support for enhanced audio return channel (eARC) enables home theater enthusiasts to seamlessly utilize HDMI connectivity and enjoy the highest quality audio formats available with superb detail and depth. An excellent option for gamers, the new TVs are compatible with variable refresh rate (VRR) as well as automatic low latency mode (ALLM) which helps deliver a clean image, without stutter or tearing.
 
Now we just need a graphics card with HDMI 2.1 output! Maybe a new RX3070 or RX3080 perhaps?
 
Hopefully at least AMD's new video cards will have HDMI 2.1. AFAIK the Xbox One X is still the only output device with HDMI 2.1, and even then it only has VRR and ALLM support.

I hope they offer some models that are smaller than 55". I'd love to get a C9 in 40-49" flavor.
 
I am willing to pay $CAD 5,000 for a 77"

Just don't care about 8K... In fact, I find 8K less desirable than 4K

Technically the Xbox One X is certified as 2.0b. So it has VRR and ALLM and FreeSync 2.0 (FreeSync + HDR). It has the internals to support 2.1, and Microsoft said they would unlock all those features once sets support the new standard, but that the Xbox One X would not go through the recertification process. So it is more like 2.0b+ instead of a full 2.1 implementation. Which is probably fine since I doubt there are too many games that can run over 60FPS in 4K on the X. A couple of lo-fi indies maybe.
 
I'm in for a 28-32" if they come in around $500.

Yep, I'm just gonna go ahead and keep dreaming...

It might be possible, but I doubt it will happen. My guess is that lg will limit the tvs with hdmi 2.1 to their larger displays. That said, the top tier 8k oled is slated to be 88 inches. That size can also be cut into four 44" 4k oled displays. If there are some defects in one or more quadrants, perhaps the others can be salvaged and we can get a line of 44" 4k tvs/monitors with hdmi 2.1 and 120Hz and vrr and all the goodies we've been craving for years now.
 
I just want large displays with low input lag. Can we get at least this as a standard? Maybe im old, but after a few minutes I stop marveling at the resolution and wish I had super smooth input instead.

Many televisions have input lag of less than a frame these days (16.7ms or less at 60 Hz). Even better with Freesync.
 
Only reason I would care for these is if as a result the 4K version of their OLEDs dropped in price. 8K feels pointless to me for at least another 3-5 years once the content is there for it. Hell the vast majority of content now is still 720p or 1080p, not even 4K.
 
While in the US, most major cable carriers won't show anything at a better resolution than 1080i, not 1080p, and the streaming of 4K is edited and compressed so heavily it's nothing like a real 4K experience.
 
Even with legit 4K content (like a UHD Blu-Ray) you're still dealing with letterboxing and film grain with the vast majority of content. That doesn't even factor in so-so transfers and older content. You'll be hard pressed to tell the difference between 1080p and 4K unless you're doing a side-by-side with brand-new HQ movies or you have a ginormous TV.

8K would be kind of neat if you were using this as a PC monitor, but you'd need hardware that doesn't really even exist to game on it. At least for newer games that could benefit from it.
Seems like something I wouldn't want/need for a while. 4K/60 only just became reality. 8K/120 ain't happening any time soon.
 
I don't mind the resolution if the scaling (and speed of said scaling) is on point. Displays that are effectively resolutionless will be a thing one day...
 
I normally get excited about new display tech but not even close on this one. I just finished upgrading 'the cave' to a pretty nice 4k setup and that includes the rig/t.v./receiver/cables/speakers/speaker stands. It's gonna be at least 2+ years before this starts to get my interest. I'd be more interested in VRR 120hz 4k t.v.'s but since NV isn't about to support non g-sync it wouldn't matter for me anyway and not about to drop anything for their panels.

It's easy to ridicule current high end GPU prices these days but compared to what stuff like this is likely to cost I'd say it makes Turing look affordable.
 
It’s [H]’s weekly 8K sucks and we’ll never need anything more than 1080p thread.
 
I think they'll be quick to progress:
8K...16K...64K...256K...and then reach a stopping point, because 640K ought to be enough for anybody.

8k native source or gtfo
I believe that the 2020 Olympics will be in 8K, but will only be broadcast in Japan. There is some 8K content out there but it is very limited.

It was also my understanding that the US broadcasters were planning on skipping 4K and going to 8K. I hope that pans out sometime in the next 5 years or so.

Samsung supports VRR on some of their 2018 models. Those 4K untis took a dive in price since Samsung also released their 8K last year.

Reports say these will do 13ms. Will be tempted, but i don't want to give up my 3D model..if the 77" is affordable, I'll probably cave though...
 
Who needs 16:9 ? Im just going to buy 16 x 1080p monitors and run them dual stacked, horizontally in a 360 degree ring for the ultimate in immersion. I will place a bar stool in the middle and spin around with a trackIR attached to my beer hat.

As you spin you'll more ray traces than any card will ever render. ;)
