Dell unleashes its new 8K monitor, costs $5000

Dell's huge 31.5-inch 8K monitor is now available, with the Dell UP3218K costing $5000

Dell is the first to market with an 8K display, unleashing its new UltraSharp UP3218K: a new 31.5-inch LCD with a native 7680x4320 resolution, or 8K. The cost? A huge $5000.


Now remember that 8K isn't a cakewalk, and that DisplayPort 1.3 is limited to 4K60 - so you'll need to use 2 x DisplayPort connectors on Dell's new UP3218K to hit the native 8K resolution. Dell includes 100% of Adobe RGB coverage, 100% sRGB, and 98% of DCI-P3 wide color gamut on the UP3218K.


For gamers, Dell's new 8K monitor is out of this world - as you'd need two of NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards to even get close to 60FPS gaming at 8K. But still, that doesn't stop me from wanting, and soon getting one.
