OWC Announces Thunderbolt Dual DisplayPort 1.4 Adapter supporting up to dual 8K displays

Slick! Now what I want is an 8K display with professional color management, at least 34 inches in size. But that presumes a video card than can support 8K also. And with supply chains strained to the breaking point, 8K displays are as rare as hen’s teeth, with very little selection. Well, no selection at all, even at B&H Photo.

But even with a 34-inch display, the pixel density is considerably more dense than a 27-inch 5K display. See Too-High Pixel Density on 5K and 8K Displays Impedes Image Assessment.

Practical issue: an 8K display will consume most of the write bandwidth on the Thunderbolt bus it is used on. Two 8K displays will leave almost zero bandwidthfor writing data. So on machines with a single Thunderbolt bus (iMac 5K and some of the smaller laptops), you cannot really use both 8K video and data, as a practical matter.
