What would it take for you to be able to watch it in 8K?

Norway is an extraordinarily beautiful country.

Norwegian photographer Morten Rustad has just finished a beautiful 8K time lapse movie featuring the landscapes of Norway.

What would you need to be able to watch it?

1. A fairly fast Internet connection«

Those awesome 411 seconds will stutter in 8K unless you're on a 20 Mbit/s connection or better.

You can, of course, always just download the 8K video and watch the local copy. But that'd make for a bit more work, and we're averse to that.

2. A capable desktop computer«

Plenty of desktop graphics cards do 8K and VR these days.

As of writing this you'll find more than 180 4K capable laptops. But not a single 8K laptop.

To get an 8K capable computer, you'd have to buy a desktop and an 8K capable graphics card. These are plenty.

There's nearly a thousand 8K graphics cards and the prices start at a reasonable 100$.

3. An 8K tv or 8K monitor«

First 8K screen. But it'll cost you.

You can't really buy an 8K tv yet.

But come March you'll be able to buy a 32" Dell 8K monitor for a whooping 5.000$.

In other words: it'll still be a while before your display is sporting 8K.

...Yet.

It's beautiful.
