Back at CES earlier this year, Dell first unveiled its brand new 32-inch 8K monitor. The Dell UltraSharp UP3218K uses a 32-inch IPS panel running at a monstrous 7680×4320 resolution and while things went quiet on its release for a couple of months, today Dell finally started accepting orders- if you have $5000 to spare.
The Dell UltraSharp UP3218K has a resolution that is around four times that of Ultra HD (3840×2160) and around 16 times higher than standard 1080p. As you might expect, the panel does run at a 60Hz refresh rate, which makes sense given that this is clearly not a gaming monitor.
Other specifications include a 1300:1 contrast ratio, 400 nits brightness and a 6ms (GTG) response time. This monitor uses Dell’s PremierColor technology, which essentially means it is rated for 100 percent Adobe RGB and sRGB coverage, as well as 98 percent of the DCI-P3 colour spectrum.
As you might imagine, the stand offers swivel, pivot, tilt and height adjustment, which you would expect at this price.If you happen to have $4999.99 to spend on a new monitor, then you can find this at the Dell store. The first shipments are expected to go out on the 14th of April.
KitGuru Says: I was amazed when I first saw the sheer amount of screen space available when I first made the jump to 4K resolution, so it is hard for me to even imagine 8K. That said, at that resolution, I imagine you would definitely need some form of scaling in place to avoid everything becoming too small.
