Dell rules the 8K display game right now with their out-of-this-world UP3218K, but now Philips will be joining the ultra high-res 7680 x 4320 game with their upcoming Philips 328P8K monitor.
Philips upcoming 328P8K will rock a 31.5-inch IPS-based panel with its native 7680 x 4320 resolution, 100% Adobe RGB/sRGB color space support, and even HDR 400 support. Philips calls it HDR 400 on the 328P8K as its brightness is set at 400 nits, which is enough to meet AMD's requirements for FreeSync 2 HDR, but is not even h alf of the HDR10 standard which is 1000 nit peak brightness - and it doesn't begin to compare against Dolby Vision's 4000 peak brightness target.
We should expect a 60Hz refresh rate that will be driven by 2 x DisplayPort 1.3 connectors (the same display connectivity requirement as Dell's UP3218K display), while we can expect a USB hub with USB Type-A and Type-C ports.
Philips should hit a cheaper price than Dell at 8K, with Dell's UP3218K costing less than $4000 now. Philips hasn't released any details on pricing, but the ETA on their new 8K display is Q1 2018, still a while away yet allowing Dell to scoop up anyone wanting an 8K display right now, and not in 2018.
