[CES 2017] It seems that the 27-inch ultrathin HDR monitor unveiled by Dell the other day wasn’t all the company had up its sleeve, because Dell has also announced a massive 32-inch display that comes with a stunning 8K resolution, which in case you’re wondering, is basically 16 times the resolution of Full HD.
As it stands 4K displays haven’t exactly become commonplace yet, and the 4K resolution isn’t the mainstream standard yet either, although both are steadily making their way there. So for Dell to make the leap to an 8K display, chances are this display is aimed at professionals who might have such a need for a high-resolution screen.
According to Dell, the Dell UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD 8K Monitor is the world’s first 8K display. It has a refresh rate of 60Hz, a 178-degree viewing angle, 1.07 billion colors, 400 nits brightness, 1,300:1 contrast ratio, and a bunch of ports which includes 4x USB 3.0. Oddly enough no mention of USB-C/Thunderbolt, which is weird because you’d think an 8K display would be purchased for future-proofing purposes.
We took a good look at it during CES 2017, and the sharpness is simply out of this world. We wish that you could see this CAD view on the monitor, showing extremely minute, yet sharp details. It’s beautiful.
Unsurprisingly the 32-inch display will not come cheap. Dell is expected to release it later this year where it will retail for a staggering $5,000. So, any takers?
