Actually no... (1) is completely impossible (2) is possible, but not because of failure to take the entire market.

This is all correct. But I'm sure if anyone can produce Grade A psychotropic drugs, it's the chemistry division of a large Korean chaebol. :)

The bandwidth would allow things like higher framerates and 4:4:4 video for 4K.... Exactly how much bandwidth you need for 4k60fps and 4:4:4 is not something I know, however.
