First, it was a 27-inch canvas display and an all-in-one computer with ten speakers. Now, Dell just unveiled the world's very first 8K monitor. The CES 2017 is fast turning to be something else.
Dell already impressed with its duo of products - the XPS 27 and Canvas 27 - announced earlier but the company is far from done. It now has the UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD Monitor in its stable.
The Dell Ultrasharp UP3218K boasts of being the first monitor in the world to have 8K resolution. But it doesn't end there. The display has a 7,680 x 4,320-pixel resolution. In other words, it has 33.2 million total pixels. Compare that to the current norm of 4K displays with 3,840 x 2,160-pixel resolutions and one will instantly know that the viewing experience will definitely be out of this world. Even Apple's much-anticipated iMac with Retina display will "only" have 5K resolution making it far less superior than the Ultrasharp att least in terms of the display.
But the other features of the Ultrasharp are no pushovers either. It offers 1.07 billion different kinds of colors and displays 100 percent of the Adobe RGB representation along with 100 percent of sRGB and Rec709 color spectrums. It also employs the PremierColor technology to come up with the most remarkable image quality possible, as described by Hot Hardware.
The 32-inch monitor is also impressive outside. It sports an all-aluminum frame with limited bezels on all the sides around the screen. The monitor can swivel, pan, and tilt while its height can easily be adjusted accordingly.
According to CNet, Dell is targeting professionals like content creators as it is meant to be used in "commercial fields where in-depth image zooming is critical".
But with high-end specs such as these, expect the price to be somewhere north, Dell placed the Ultrasharp UP3218k's retail price at $4,999. It will drop into stores starting March 23. Those interested and have some extra cash to spend can order online from the company's website, Dell.com.
