Like a lot of the big brands at CES 2018, Sony has been thinking ahead. So while it used the show to unveil the first of its 2018 TV sets featuring its excellent current-gen X1 Extreme processor, it’s also been teasing what’s possible from the Extreme’s successor, the X1 Ultimate.

Set to power Sony’s TVs of the future, the X1 Ultimate was flexing its muscles at a few demos on the Sony stand to show what it’s capable of when it comes to brightness, detail, frame rate and picture resolution.
