When Dell teased its 5K monitor, we expected an MSRP of $2499, but according to the latest reports, it might be priced much lower than that. The latest rumor is that Dell will price it at under $2000, making it all that more enticing.




To refresh your memory, the Dell UltraSharp UP2715K is a 27-inch monitor with a 5K resolution, of 5120x2880. At this resolution, it has a pixel density of 220DPI, which is (for a PC) retina-busting. Dell isn't just pushing the resolution to 5K to hit headlines, as the color accuracy is also extremely good, with a 10-bit IPS panel providing 99% Adobe RGB and 100% of sRGB coverage.




On top of that, we have 178-degree viewing angles, an 8ms response time, 350 nits of brightness and 1000:1 static contrast ratio. The 5120x2880 resolution requires not one, but two active DisplayPort connections, so that it can hit 5K at 60Hz.
