Take a long, critical look at K-putt’s 8K hack for Crysis 3: by editing the Windows program file, he’s been able to make Crysis 3 play at a rather wide 8K (specifically, 8,000 x 3,333 resolution). In comparison, the fidelity is 13 times more pixels than you’d see in a 1080p image — so the tiniest thing is filled with details.
Oh, and you should also feel bad (if you’re a PC gamer): the hardware to cope with this sort of gaming doesn’t even truly exist; the almighty NVIDIA GeForce Titan graphics card can’t handle this sort of gaming considering it’s already sprinting at 5,760 x 1,080 on three displays; something with four times the pixel pushing would be required. Also, you can’t find an 8K screen to purchase, so hooking up multiple monitors is the only current solution.
Still, the next decade of gaming could very easily look like this and — gasp — better.
