If the 8K devices are going up in price I assume the 4K ones will stay put then? Do you know?VRROOM is expected to ship in September or later. Pre-orders should open up soon. The price listed is the initial pre-order price for the first 100 units ordered. The price will rise as more are ordered; eventually to $499 after 500 are sold I believe. You probably need to be a subscriber to the HDfury Discord support server in order to grab one at the lowest pre-order price.
Note that the VRROOM won't include Diva-like Ambilight support; there may be a later device to replace the Diva. It will be more like the Vertex 2 but with HDMI 2.1 ports with 4K120 and VRR support. And will feature an eARC port like the Arcana as well as an HDMI audio output.
FRL6 is not confirmed because we don't have yet any source/display combo to confirm or prove it yet.Is the note about "FRL6: 48Gbps/1500MHz under testing" something that may or may not happen down the line and if so what additional features would it allow? With the new chipset, is the upscaler confirmed to have full 4:4:4 processing? There is also a note that DSC1.2a is that referring to support for Display Stream Compression (DSC)?
4K/120Hz/4:4:4/12bit is 40Gbps and Vrroom is advertised as 40Gbps so it should be able to support it. Hopefully HDfury staff will reply to confirm for you.Only downside is appears there's no 4K/120Hz/4:4:4/12bit processing.

4:4:4 10-bit would be 40 Gbps, but I believe 4:4:4 12-bit would be 48 Gbps. HDfury has had difficulty finding source devices that will output a 48 Gbps signal. Probably not reporting 48 Gbps formats as supported for this reason. Verify before claiming support.
