Dell is also attacking high-end displays with its UP3218K UltraSharp 32 Ultra HD 8K monitor. That mouthful of a moniker denotes the display’s more impressive feature: Dell has shoved 7,680 x 4,220 resolution into the 32-inch monitor, which is a crazy 33.2 million pixels and an official “8K” certification. For the mathematically challenged, that equates to more than 16 times the content of a Full HD display, and an incredibly sharp 280 pixels-per-inch.
In addition, the UltraSharp 32 provides excellent colors, with 100-percent coverage of the Adobe RGB and sRGB gamuts and 1.07 billion colors. Contrast ratio is also excellent at 1,300:1, with 400 nits of brightness keeping up with the brightest ambient lighting. Connectivity is also strong, with four USB 3.0 ports, two DisplayPort 1.3 connections, and an audio line out. Interestingly, Dell has skipped the HDMI support.
Dell should begin shipping the UltraSharp 32 in March 2017, when you’ll have to pay a pretty penny for it. Retail pricing is set at $5,000, so you’ll be making a serious investment to put the new display on your desktop.
