While the Xbox Series X is some impressive hardware for a console, it’s still a far way from 8K resolution that has seemed to be a buzz word since we were able to reach native 4K.
Speaking with Wired, Vice President of Gaming at Xbox Phil Spencer says that we are still years away from achieving 8K resolution.
“I think 8K is aspirational technology. The display capabilities of devices are not really there yet. I think we’re years away from 8K being—if it ever is—standard in video games.” (One tech advance with immediate, tangible benefits is a 120-Hz refresh rate, which Spencer says is “absolutely there for people to use.”)
