Okay, yes, I know last episode total Cliffhanger with some of you expressing frustration that we left you with these apparently whatever that means Anyway, we never meant to lead you on but between the desk the monitors and the Troubleshooting it was just way too much for one video But we're back at it with 16k gaming and this episode will be the last and it's going to work we hope Synergy allows you to share your mouse and keyboard Between multiple computers at once check it out now at the link in the video description Okay, so here's where we left off some of the monitors are running correctly 4K 60 hertz some Of them are not working at all and some of them are somewhere in between at this God-Awful 1024 by 768 resolution with pillar boxes So troubleshooting we reseated our graphics cards. We double check the connections on our quadrille sync card and finally it might be the painstakingly cable managed 25 foot Generic displayport cables I've got the new ones freakin fantastic okay, so while jake Works on swapping the cables out I want to get into a little bit more detail about the 16 K experience We are trying to create here we wanted to update our last insane resolution gaming setup in every possible way, so We reached out to aether who graciously provided 16 of their 4k Predator xbone gaming displays We weren't able to make use of all of their gaming features like G-sync in our config But their IPs panels are an absolute must for a monitor array that's so large that in regular youth you could actually be looking at it from 30 to 50 degrees Off-Center Let's move around to where Jake's working and take a closer look at the cabling even with some clever Cable management using these stealth power bars that we've got here. We needed four Pounds of power cord, and we actually need to wall circuits in order to run this monstrosity Because with a typical power consumption of around 70 watts each our monitors alone draw more than 1,100 watts from the wall and Sending an image to the monitors was no easy battle either so our original setup had a whopping 300 feet of displayport cabling all nicely managed into the desk save for a Little bit, that's kind of hanging out the back here dick drinking that down to 240 feet now basically a lot of displayport cabling, and I think we've got all the replacements in right yep, okay? Wait for it wait for it. Oh What is this? This isn't sixteen gamers one CPU is it no Yes, yeah, wait. Are they all 4k butt-fuck again? Alright There it is Sixteen k's of soon to be gaming Glory, and this is probably even more Impressive than you realize because remember 16 K is not twice as much as eight K and 8k is not twice as much as 4k we are talking about a 4x increase in pixel count as we move up so to put this thing in perspective Look at the 1080p full Hd monitor that you're probably watching this video on right now 16 K is 64 times the total pixels your 1080p monitor would be this big That's it Now let's talk about how we're planning to drive them We learned a lot from our last crazy Experiment when we were the first to game at 8k on YouTube and there were three problems We needed to solve one We are running a mere two graphics cards last time with consumer amounts of video memory That needed to be rectified to NVIdia is consumer grade display standing Envy surround is not very flexible and free when you run a 3D application across multiple cards there can be a desync Rijn eyes Jelly effect when you move left and right, that's pretty nauseating thankfully Guardian-Angel NvIdia saves the day supplying us with four of their quadro P5 thousands valued at a total of about 10,000 u.s. Dollars I saw a lot of comments on the last video with why quadrants quadros are for gaming Okay, if you went to linus university you would know that they gain just fine And you'd also know that they address a lot of those problems for us each of our P5 Thousands has similar performance to a GTX 1080 but with a whopping 16 gigs of vram But it's 64 gigs total for all dim pixels since we're not running an ethical I also professional Quadro cards have a different display combining utility called mosaic that can scale to far more displays than NB Surround and Finally to address the Jelly effect and keep this entire wall of monitors in sync They have this extra little connector to plug into a quadro sync to cards and it works hopefully This looks like the last video you told me it was going to work.

It is gonna work And is well. I'm a bit worried and And it works ok now to be clear this feature is really designed for jumbotrons and large Format, digital signage like a time square video wall versus gaming But we appreciate NvIdia agreeing to let us showcase it for that Which is coming? Very very soon now See you can tell I'm going to be gaming because I have a gaming chair oh Okay, my leg is recovered and more importantly we've got all the monitors arranged correctly now so check this out each Row of monitors is running off of an individual card So what we should see if we wiggle something back and forth is we should see some jelly in this line here, but because of the sync card It's actually pretty darn clean, okay also since we're in here holy crap That's right my friends 15000 360 by 8640 and we are going to launch some freaking games After we take a closer look at the table So if you didn't see it in part one this custom version of I see tables desk extends their normal design from 6 to 16 monitors But everything else about it is actually this cool even if you just get a regular one so the entirety of the desk is customizable from the Bluetooth Controllable RGB lighting to the swappable Fascia panels which might I mentioned come in a variety of colors The tempered glass desk can also sport a graphic under it just pretty 6 you can shop your favorite game car or waifu If that's your mojo, and there's built-in cable management for the integrated case that they call the t-con This is from desk PC. Final form s**t right here so Are you ready to launch a game now? What should we do first? First minecraft here do some Minecraft yeah You almost need a separate desk, so you can guess while your desk, or oh? Okay, hold on I got this It's like oh my goodness. That's a lot of pixels loading world Wow, whoa, holy? Actual balls, I will confess to you. I have never played Minecraft do we have a frat counter This is probably what like 800 by 600 so F11 So we were at 400 FPS. It's just gone Click F3.

I think you can see up this there we go there we go No So we're running at like oh Sonic's there we're running it like 40 to 50 frames per second at 16k 16k It's like 5 billion pixels a second or something like that No, we can't see as you randy's. I'm just going to hit get over here area No way but every GPU is using exactly The same amount of memory it might be shared jake yeah Alright next game. Let's do one that We haven't tried yet Right rise of the tomb Raider go low settings just so we like have some vram possibilities there sure ok Here we go you ready. Yeah, oh whoa Ok game launched.

No way 3 fps There never start Benchmark remember there's more there's more to lag about a game than just the framerate quick oh Yes Holy Crap like the game's not even running in real time right now like you notice how long that pain took yeah? Yeah, I mean looks great Even like up close right because this is this is still 4k level of detail on every screen right yeah, I think this is about one frame per second Lara croft is actually like on your side all over the moon look at this. This is actual size You heard it here first. This is video games in real size. Maybe I didn't hold the escape key for long enough. Oh Wow, yeah, oh wow? holy Balls, I Got a know what video memory. I mean it must have just been pin.

GAMING at 16K RESOLUTION?? – HOLY $H!T

Yeah Oh, we were purely limited by vram like it was swapping out to system memory So that's interesting that means so we were at 65% so there was 30% more performance in there We could've been running at one point 3 frames per second look at the Power usage You only ever went up to 50 on the hall that's really interesting, so this is like frame frame frame frame frames like frame system Memory frame system memory very interesting great there we go. I mean this is running on this dough. Oh Damn, no way whoa, oh haha Look at these tiny options We're at the right resolution.

Go to advance the bottom right now. Hell. Yeah can we try oh my God? It's like way over here. Oh Sorry, I mean give me the mouse But you know I can do it you could do it and then once you get this our frame rate uh 100 now 70 no way.

That's totally playable - - like insane tearing Okay, let's turn vsYNC on does it not has built-in be saying. Oh here. It is in a work area That actually fixed this area That's not bad wow What do we got 40? How's the input legs you know what a lot better than you would think memory usage is only eight gigs Yep, the temps are getting up there and powers getting up there actually not as much as I would have thought very interesting Alright So you can play Half-Life 2 at? 16k Okay, what else we got shadow of mordor? This is a disaster Geographical coordinates of virtual putting Billy Bob Thornton on your arm is a disaster I'm just looking for a little lunch it. Oh there you go wow wicked This is not the right resolution though not even close. Yeah, this is like 1080 or something loading and Also, it's completely crashed now, okay.

Well this games just broke You did manage to lock up the system. No, okay, something's up all right So we're going to try one more game then okay 500 Oh my goodness. This is impossible to read. Oh, oh my God look at the you I? Got your the mini maps over here. They took a mini map. We've got the settler over there How am I supposed to okay choose production for the might? Go on where is it? Oh my god. It's way up there I'm Gonna make a granary Upon you mentioning is it a monument. I don't know I can't read it.

What framerate is this running at, 20 FPS? Not bad you have afterburner open, not bad All right, let's find out V 5 medium details 8k not bad 9 gigs Huh? So there you have it guys once again. You saw it here first 16 K gaming on the PC. Let's see you do that on an xBox? if you do 4k on an xbox There are a hundred reasons for wanting multiple computers at your desk. Maybe you're a Mac person primarily, but you need a non-virtualized windows environment for some reason Synergy solves the problem of having to have two keyboards and two mice for two or more Separate computers you can share one set of peripheral So you'll no longer get confused and the whole thing is seamless you just drag the mouse from one screen to another we're talking PC mac and even Linux support they offer a basic and pro option for synergy with a one-time payment and Features include advanced stuff like clipboard sharing between computers dragging and dropping files between computers The ability to set up hot cheese and more so use our link in the video description to get 50% off synergy today So thanks for watching guys if you dislike this video Go home Just go home, and if you're at home go home again And if you like it hit the like button get subscribed maybe consider checking out where to buy the stuff we featured at the link in the video description We featured a lot of really cool stuff in this video also down there.
