Dell is continuing to up its game in the display market, as we witnessed last month with the official launch of the 32-inch 8K UP3218K. That monitor began shipping earlier this week with an eye-popping price tag of $4,999. Today, Dell is showing off a new display with a much more palatable price tag (though still out of reach for most mainstream consumers).
