    Can gaming at 8K really be easy in 2019? Sharp thinks so, and they sent over a demo unit to show us just how easy it is. But they didn't account for one thing... the Linus factor.

    I was thinking whilst watching this that if he dropped the adaptors and went with actual cables it would likely work. No where near as complex as trying to get 8k working I'll admit but I had the same problems with various high end graphics cards and my 4K 65" OLED (2-3 screens + Occulus CV1 VR meant I didn't have enough HDMI's on most cards). I could not get it working with the Hz and bit depth I wanted using adaptors (and I tried just about all of them, all claiming to be "active"), as soon as I switched to cables problems just went away.

    If there's something that this video has definitely shown us, it's that adapters are not all the same, and that their quality sometimes matters.
    I'm surprised, though, that Sharp hadn't foreseen this and added another multi-input made of DisplayPort inputs. You're a pro, and still you spent a lot of time to figure out that the problem was the adapters: imagine how many bad reviews the product may receive just because of bad adapters. That'd be bad advertising for Sharp, when that's not even completely their fault.
