Dell announced at CES that it was planning to sell a Dell UltraSharp 32 8K Monitor later this year. If you’ve been holding your breath ever since, you can now exhale, though try not to pass out at the $5,000 price tag.
The listing reveals a shipment date of April 17. Yes, Dell’s new UltraSharp 32-inch 8K monitor (UP3218K) costs a cool five grand. Dell UltraSharp 32 8K Monitor is 7680×4320 pixels for a total resolution of approximately 33 megapixels. It is four times the resolution of 4K and 16 times the resolution of 1080p. In addition to 8K resolution, the monitor also supports outputting 1.07 billion colors. And 100% coverage of Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces.
Dell UltraSharp UP3218K has a 1,300;1 contrast ratio, 400 nits brightness. And a respectable 6ms (gray-to-gray) response time. However, trying to game on this thing would require an insane amount of graphics horsepower. We’re not quite there yet, as the industry is still adjusting to 4K, which itself requires a fair bit of GPU muscle.
Dell’s 8K monitor is really intended for graphics professionals, not gaming—further evidenced by the lack of G-Sync support for variable refresh rates. We suppose users who heavily multi-task with several windows open at once are also invited to play. As to the former, Dell promises a high degree of color accuracy.
“Dell PremierColor offers wide color coverage that meets major industry standards—100 percent AdobeRGB, 100 percent sRGB. And 100 percent Rec. 709, 98 percent DCI-P3—for immaculate, unwavering colors,” Dell says.
The near borderless display is height adjustable and can pivot (rotate), swivel, and tilt.
