5K or 8K Would you swap pledge


#1

Im still not sure about the 5k or 8k the 5k isn’t uprated so native and the 8k is 1440 uprated so how much is the 5k easier on gpu. 300 lines i make it

But most important would be how many pixel per sq inch is 5k compared to vive pro for comparison i understand the 8k has less screen door but i think this is an important question for anyone thinking about swapping there pleadge.


#2

the 8k is apparently rendering at 6k or 8k depending on settings and downsampling to 5k , sending across cable and then upscaling. for all practical purposes the unit is running at the same gpu draw as an 8kx.


#3

No, I backed both :laughing:


#4

Its early, but right now, I’d switch to the 5k.

I just wish i could be refunded the difference rather than get more accessories, since I already included the ones I wanted.


#5

No, because the display card will be cheaper soon.


#6

I just dont know what headset version its best.

1- Anyone tested the 5k and 8k? The sde and resolution of 5k its so much different than 8k?

because i think the 5k will be much more stable: 90hz, better perfomance, and without a scaler maybe will have much less errors and heat.

2- the 5k has better sde and resolution than sansung odissey?

3- if people that back the full pack 799$ change to 5k 150$ extra can be used for example to wireless module?

@xunshu can you answer please the 3 question.
thanks


#7

Not sure what answer you expect man.

It’s been said before that reviews and comparisons will have to wait at least until the backer meetups.
I don’t know for sure but I do believe it’s all about the 8K first. 5K is only for later.


#8

i dont want a review. i only want to know from people that tested the 5k and 8k in the beginning of the year if the sde and resolution, between 5k and 8k are so diferent. Dont need to be answered now, but i need to know before i choose 5k or 8k.


#9

@xunshu is there any information as to per inch side by side comparison to pixel density for the 5k against rift and vive pro , i know we have pixal count but nothing comparing the density over a set size which will give us an idea on the SDE to expect ,Honestly this will sway my decision


#10

That seems a very strange way of doing it,sounds like it would choke on prossesing? f the 5k is native why wouldnt they just upscale that signal ,maybe something to do with 8kx that this isnot


#11

5K is starting to look more attractive to me. I will have to wait to see impressions of the two side by side before making a decision.


#12

Reading some stuff i now think its all to do with SS ,if you SS an 8K image and down scale to up scale ,is going to look much better than a SS 5K image as the 5K image has not got the sampling range that the 8K image has so would not benafite from the extra pixals on the 8K screen.
But still dont know PPI of the screens


#13

@dustyearlobe, talking to yourself is the first sign of madness. Hmm, is it?, i think so, …oh bugger.


#14

HA HA i meant to Quote or something like that ,but hay sometimes im the only person that listens

@D3Pixel and then i got distracted ,yes you did dont argue ,lol


#16

Wait 8k? Like 8k res?


#17

dont forget: the 5K has only 500 ppi, the 8K has 800!


#18

how did you find that out 500 ppi ? do you know what the vive pro has, i know 5k sounds like a big jump but as the screen will be bigger its hard to judge the real ppi of the screens


#19

ok found this (2,880 x 1,600 (615 PPI) this is for the vive pro and (2,160 x 1,200 (448 PPI) this is for vive and only judging this as a like for like magnifacation as this is other info i dont know .
So 5k 500pp i 8K 800ppi gonna have to think about that :expressionless:


#20

I will be receiving both.

Essentially the 5k doesn’t need to super sample as much to produce a quality picture.

Where as the 8k needs more base super sampling to have a good looking upscaled image.

The 8k runs like a rollercoaster.

Vr ss 6k downsampled to 5k process complete nice image (5k headset)

8k may need to render at 6.5k to 8k then downsample to 5k (nicer looking 5k image) upscaled to 8k (image quality on par or bit better than 5k native panel).

Think of a reg 2d game on a 1080p monitor using DSR/VSR or in game SS renders higher for better looking 1080p image without need of Antialiasing.
