Best Big HDTV for the N64

At this year's Consumer Electronic Show (CES) Sony unveiled an 8k television that can achieve a mind-numbing 10,000 Nits of brightness! :o For reference, 500 Nits is closer to what most displays nowadays generally put out.



This is noteworthy because the biggest problem the N64 has on modern HDTV's is matching the brightness of CRT's. Perhaps Sony's new tech is the answer that us retro video gaming fans have been looking for? :huh:

Iím not sure I want to upscale anti-aliased 240p to 8k but the brightness is nice. 😁
An N64 Mini, with progressive scan and HDMI support, would probably look nice on Sony's miraculous new Ultra HD TV. :rofl:

Samsung's Q9S 8k TV may not be as bright as Sony's new model but it features artificial intelligence that actually learns how to handle low-res video.

We don't have details like a price or release date for the Q9S, but the 85-inch monster features a "proprietary algorithm" to upscale lower-res video for its Super Hi-Vision screen. The artificial intelligence comes in with its ability to "learn from itself" to improve over time

Wow! :o
