Bury my body down by the highwayside, so that my old evil spirit can get a Greyhound bus and ride

I assume then that that is higher than cat6

As far as I am aware, Cat6 maxes out at 10Gbps, but I could be wrong

Even USB 4 is maxing out at 40Gbps. 8K was a terrible idea.

8k is kind of dumb, you have to be within like 2 feet of the screen to tell the difference between it and 4k.

That's what they said about HD-Ready and Full HD.

They also said it about 4k and 1080p. They're right for a huge percentage of the customer base. I know countless people that used an old composite video cable to hook up their $mediasource to a new HD TV a while back who would rant and rave about how amazing and wonderful the picture quality was and how sharp and detailed. Plenty of other people misconfigure something and set their source to 720p and hoot and holler about it.

My parents wouldn't know the difference between 720p and 4k unless you made them start actively looking for differences, and even then they wouldn't give a flying gently caress. They would be fine with 480p.

Lots of people just don't notice or care about any of that even when it's pointed out.

For myself, I can tell the difference between 4k content and 1080p content on my 75" P-Series from my normal watching point which is about 6-8 feet away, but I have to put some effort into it if it's not an A/B test where I see one after the other.
