8K Benchmarking: 7680 x 4320 is AMAZING! - Part 1

8K: More Than Just A Number

 

Dell's impressive UP3218K is a huge 32-inch monitor with a native resolution of 7680x4320, which when sitting in front of it, feels like it's almost perfect.

 

We purchased the Dell UP3218K ourselves, which rings in with an MSRP of $4999 - but is on special right now at Dell for "just" $3899. Not bad considering how absolutely amazing this display is. As much as I want to sit here and write about the Dell UP3218K, this isn't what we're here for: we're here for the performance of 8K benchmarking and gaming on TITAN Xp in SLI, right?!

 

 

First, let's get the resolution and its pixel domination out of the way.

As you can see from this handy image, 1080p is super small compared to 4K - and absolutely tiny compared to 8K. Looking at the is-it-even-there resolution of 1280x720 that most console games run at (and now we're finally shifting into 1080p on consoles), 8K absolutely blows them away.

 

The GPU requirements of running games at 8K is nothing short of STAGGERING. You really do need GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards in SLI minimum, and even then you're not guaranteed to hit 60FPS.

 

I reached out to my friends at NVIDIA and asked for two of their freakin' unbelievably fast TITAN Xp graphics cards, and just a couple of days later they were in my hands. Props to NVIDIA for getting the TITAN Xp graphics cards down to Australia from California so fast.
