8k just isn't feasible and justifiable. It won't be until another decade until this takes hold.
4k tv have been out since around 2012 maybe and it took 6 years for it to go mainstream still with limited content. Maybe another 3 years until its on broadcasts and cable.
I play all my pc games at 4k. My 1080ti handles it perfectly. One thing about 4k is its so small you can turn off antialiasing which sharpens the whole image up even further as well as gives a big performance boost.
That said, I doubt that the benefit from 4k to 8k can be seen on even a 75" tv at 10 feet away. On my projector 135" at 12 feet away it was hard to see the difference between 1080p and 4k. This will be the main issue with it in my opinion.
