Incorrect driving position, wheel should be higher and elbows be bending 90 degrees.

Damn sweet screen though.

Nice one Rob!

One question:is the AI running?

No, they're driving cars.

Very cool, but defnitely agree with Umer. The seating position looks more like he's driving an 18 wheeler. Would be nice to have it set up closer to a formula car position but I'm sure with that 85" 4K no one even noticed. :)

What does 60P mean?

And why not cockpit mode? Interiors are the best visually speaking not to mention immersion :-)

I wonder if they are using the latest Steam build or some sort of showcase build.

Probably a showcase build. Notice SMS logo in the top right corner and Panasonic logo on the car. Maybe also PhysX stuff which we are yet to see (can't wait for this).

That screen is tooo big :eek: (me wants :rolleyes:) The cam should follow the car directly...my $0.02 :p

I guess 4k progressive @60fps...

If I'm correct it is indeed 4k progressive 60FPS. Someone mentioned in a video that these Panasonic screens are the only ones that can show 4k with 60FPS. It was that video where Nvidia show cases a triple 4k setup with PCARS running.

Something really bugs me about the article and the video. People are confusing 4K and UHD. They are not the same thing. 4K has a resolution of 40962160 but UHD has the resolution of 38402160. Now, I know that it's not much of a difference but it kinda messes up the aspect ratio of the screen.

Oh, didn't know that. Thanks for pointing out.

I believe 60P means 60hz Progressive. Most of HDMI output supports 30hz at UHD resolution and 24Hz at 4K resolution.

Very interesting. So are most 4K displays below 60Hz? I wonder how a 24Hz would be for a fast paced racing game like pCARS. Sounds way low. Imagine Vsync locked at 24FPS.

My Samsung 4k tv outputs blu-ray movies at 24hz, but games are still 60hz! 24hz in a game would be total lag-fest, i tried it once with "Crysis" and it was the worst experience ever! It's like running a game locked @ 24 FPS....sooooo slooow.

I think it's not the display but hdmi output and graphic card from the device.

For example hdmi output of my macbook pro retina supports 30hz at UHD resolution and 24Hz at 4K resolution.

Is 4K not the same as the entry-level UHD resolution (8K also UHD)?

I can play @ 60hz with my macbook pro... sadly it doesn't handle pCARS at 60fps full detail :) But I've made some tests

It depends on the firmware the devices have installed. For 4k at 60fps you need HDMI 2.0. http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7-57603018-221/hdmi-2.0-what-you-need-to-know/

Nevermind! my mind understood 1080p 30hz! I play 1080p60 with my mac! I just wish for 4k :D

Nitrogliserin, you're right. The HDMI should actually be HDMI 2.0 to output 4k with 60 Hz if I'm correct.

if these are 4K Panasonic's M/N TC-L65WT600, they also have Display Port 1.2 connective, which will allow the greater resolution bandwidth required for 3840x2160 check the size data sheet here (http://shop.panasonic.com/docs/cutsheet/TCL65WT600_Spec.pdf) near or at the bottom

or download the manual (http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/TC-L65WT600)

BKGround, you're right: it's either HDMI 2.0 or Display Port 1.2 for 4K.
