Superfluous, and no doubt costs a small fortune. All to showcase a mediocre game to boot.  I guess I'm the type who isn't impressed by running a game at 4 k, I would rather the title itself be amazing gameplay wise.

The laptop probably costs $4K

i can't wait when games render in 4k not just the resolution.

Those 18 inch notebooks and the huge power brick they come with are way too big and heavy to be practical and portable. It isn't even healthy to carry that much weight around on your back without having a back pack that has a frame and a belt like they use in the military.

Wow that 4K TV really looks great in 720p on my laptop.

4K sucks... I will have to be too close to the screen to see the difference against Full HD... 4K is only for eagles..

@Jedi4ce28 The game is being used to showcase the technology. Like the guy in the video said, all this stuff is available now, so you can look up the price and it is pretty expensive, but nothing too ridiculous. 


I agree about amazing gameplay, but I would rather have both amazing gameplay + amazing visuals.

@adirodeth Lol...it's for the fuuuture! This tech is for GIANT TVs. And 4K definitely doesn't suck. Digital cameras have had resolutions much higher than that for awhile now. It's a noticeable difference, but it does depend on screen size and distance. 


Soon enough we'll have entire walls covered in pixels and 4K+ will be a necessity.

@Oldgun About the same. The 18s start at about £1200. I've built one at top top end for £5000 before. That is the ones with dual cards and 64GB of RAM that you would need for 4K at 60fps, if you can get 60fps at all, I'm not even sure. I don't think he mentioned the frame rate it was running at did he?
