I for one am somewhat perplexed as to why this process should take hours of explanation. That in itself tells me things are a tad complicated. If the differences were so massive or obvious then there would be no need for such detailed info. You could summarise in 10-20 minutes.
Yeh, the Pimax 8K is better than 5K+ because overall it just looks better across a number of games, has better performance and has more headroom for future Super-sampling. Thanks for watching.
Yeh, the 5K+ is better than 8K because overall it just looks better across a number of games. Performs better, has nicer colours and sharper image. Thanks for watching.
However, I am getting the feeling the differences will be on a use-case level which means tons of scenarios listed where one performs better than the other with no overall clear winner.
8K is better for Elite D if you like reading text in cockpit
5K+ is better for Elite D if you like looking at distant details.
I mean, that's not really going to help me make a decision. Sure I will be informed at least but still scratching my head. What about which looks better if I like reading text in the cockpit and desire clear distant details? - Cue Sebastian "Get a Star VR Rob".
Yeh, 8K looks better than the 5K+ in Fallout 4 if you don't mind reduced performance.
5K+ plays Fallout 4 better than the 8K but doesn't look as good.
I would interpret this as a possible headache inducing nightmare rather than a definite one size fits all solution.
As I said earlier. I do hope the reviewers have the balls to say which one they would choose overall regardless of specific use cases/games. An overall winner if they were only allowed to keep one of them and not to chicken out by saying "well I play 100 hours of Elite D per week so I will choose the 8K because it looks and plays better on the 8K" Ignoring all the other games and uses.
I will watch these long videos even if that's not my preferred format. But I have to sit here now fingers crossed that the end result after my eyes have glazed over that not only am I informed, I am left knowing which one to choose and when I do hit that submit button, there is no shadow of a doubt or regret.
It's on you guys!
