All eyes are on Sony for its next generation PlayStation 5 console and its purported announcement in 2019 followed by a release in 2020, but new rumors suggest it could support up to 8K which would be mind blowing. I truly don't know about these rumors and I don't think the PS5 will be capable of 8K let alone 8K at 120FPS, but still, let's talk about it.
During the Inter BEE 2018 (International Broadcast Equipment Exhibition) event in Tokyo a few weeks ago, Sony showed off some next-gen TV technology called CLEDIS. CLEDIS, or Crystal LED Display System was shown off rocking native 8K (7680x4320) at a huge 120Hz. This blows away native 8K panels like the Dell UP3218K that I use here in the GPU test lab for TweakTown as it only has a native 60Hz refresh rate, 8K at 120FPS though, that's some holy grail gaming right there.
Where the PS5 comes into the story is that the CLEDIS system was shown on a larger-than-lifve 440-inch screen with close to 180-degree viewing angles rocking the native 8K 120FPS output. What was shown on it? Well, Gran Turismo on a PlayStation console of some sort, with people obviously thinking it's the next-gen PS5. Why? Well, we have to rewind the clock a little for that.
A few months ago Polyphony Digital CEO Kazunori Yamauchi said during an interview that the assets the team built for GT Sport were way over-spec, right through to 8K. He said that the team is working on over-speccing assets for future PlayStation consoles, just like the next-gen PS5. During an interview with Finder, he said: "It takes six months to create a single car. It's over-specced for PS4 Pro. So we are building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today. I think it would be no problem to run it at 8K even".
