Dell Launches UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD, World's First 8K Monitor, 1 Billion Colors And Full Adobe RGB Gamut Coverage
4K monitor? That’s mere child’s play. Oh, you have a 5K monitor? Get of here with that weaksauce! Dell just introduced the UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD Monitor (UP3218K) which comes with a staggering 8K screen resolution.
4K displays have a resolution of 3840x2160, so it should come as no surprise that the UP3218K has an 8K resolution of 7680x4320. That works out 280 pixels per inch (PPI) for this 32-inch display. According to Dell, this is the equivalent of a 14MP display.
While the technical specs are no doubt impressive, Dell also is touting impressive image quality. Thanks to PremierColor technology, the UP3218K offer 1.07 billion colors along with 100 percent sRGB and 100 percent Adobe RGB representation.
Design wise, the UP3218K has minimal bezels on all sides around the screen, and can be adjusted for height, swivel, pivot and tilt.
The UP3218K is clearly aimed at professionals, so you shouldn’t be too surprised to see that it comes with a heart attack-inducing price tag: $4,999. The display goes on sale March 23rd and will be available to order direct from Dell.com.
Dell is also offering two other monitors that don’t quite reach the lofty highs of the UP3218K, but are still impressive in their own right. The Dell 27 Ultrathin Monitor (S2718D) features a Quad HD resolution and features USB-C connectivity. It features minimal bezels, along with HDR support and ComfortView for a flicker-free viewing experience. The third new monitor is the Dell 24 Touch Monitor (P2418HT), which supports 10-finger touch input along with tilt, height, and swivel adjustments.
The S2718D and P2418HT will be available for $699.99 (March 23rd) and $399.99 (January 12th) respectively.
