RX 7600 and RTX 4060 Ti stay away, 16K displays are already here
While gamers are still debating whether the 1440p to 4K transition is worth the hassle, professional display makers are slowly switching to 6K and even 8K resolution. However, what BOE has showcased at Display Week 2023 is not something even the most powerful GPUs are ready for.
The LCD-based display at the event measures 110 inches (2.79 m), but the size is not as important as the resolution. This is the world’s first 16K (15360×8640) panel that can output the image at 60 Hz refresh rate. The full image consists of 132M pixels, which is 16 times more than 4K resolution or 64 times more than 1080p, the resolution RTX 4060 Ti and RX 7600 are designed for.
The screen is based on LCD technology and offers a contrast ratio of 1200:1, 99% DCI-P3 color coverage and 400 nits of brightness. The first picture was captured by Vincent Teoh (HDTVtest):
Forget 8K. Here’s the world’s first 110-inch 16K display unveiled by BOE at #Displayweek2023. LCD-based, max 400 nits. The resolution is unreal though, no visible pixels even right up close. pic.twitter.com/kS7Tx0r4ZN

BOE did not announce when these panels will be released to the market. But those who want to keep close eyes on this topic, rest assured, you can hardly see any pixels at such a close range.
