O.k., I know we're talking about rumors here but I wonder what that rumored 53MP Resolution will actually be. 8910x5940 or 8940x5960 or 8970 x 5980? Something even more odd? Why not just 54MP (9000x6000)?
9000x6000 ... will come first in a mid 2018 Apple iMac and/or a Dell monitor ... when evyery other company aorund brings 8k monitors, they'll have it at "9k". Just like their late 2014 "5k" devices.
That would more likely be an 11K display, 5K is almost twice the pixel count of 4K (14MP vs. 8MP), where 9K would just be 25% more than 8K.
It really depends on the bandwidth of the connectors though, Displayport 1.3 tops out at either 4K@120Hz or 5K@60Hz.
I supposed given that 8K is supposed to be a 120Hz specification, it would make sense that some manufacturers would try to make a 60Hz panel for whatever connector they happen to come up with that supports 8K. However, I really hope that everyone just switches to using a 120Hz refresh rate industry wide, it makes a big difference in motion quality and at that point we won't be hurting for resolution like we are now (yes, 1920x1080 is super jaggy and we've had equivalent resolutions on PC since the mid 90's).
