It was just a couple of days ago when we brought you word that Samsung and Intel have come together to work on 4K monitors that do not cost a bomb, in fact, they will be priced at an attractive $399 each. Well, with more and more computers being able to support UHD resolution, it makes perfect sense for hardware manufacturers to come up with a compatible display, and Samsung’s latest UD590 UHD monitor does seem to fit the bill perfectly.
Just a little bit of background information – UHD content happens to show off how far we have come in terms of resolution and detail, where it sports four times the resolution and pixels of FHD, making it a true blue treat for one’s eyes. The Samsung UD590 will boast of 8 million pixels at 3840 x 2160 resolution, not to mention having a highest brightness level of 350 cd/m2, without any kind of blur or lag thanks to its best-in-class 1ms response time, with the ability to support approximately 1 billion colors. Contrast that to conventional monitors that feature just 16,700,000 colors (16.7 million), and you have an idea on how far ahead of the game the Samsung UD950 has come.
Not only that, with Picture By Picture (PBP) capability, you will be able to use a couple of computers while sharing the same monitor, now how about that? This is made possible as the monitor is split into two 1920 x 2160 display areas. [Press Release]
