A large number of companies like LG and Samsung launched their displays in this on going tech marathon but Dell made it big this time at the CES 2017, by announcing the world’s first 8K monitor.
The 32” monitor will be called Dell UP3218K. Coming over to the technical specifications:
- 7680 x 4320 (8K)
- 280 pixels per inch
- 1.07 billion colors
- 178 degree wide angle
- 60 Hz Frame rate
- 31.5” screen
- 400 nits brightness
- 9.7mm bezel

- Ports: 2x DP 1.3, Audio line–out and 4x USB 3.0 ports with 1x BC1.2 charging capability

This monitor will be packing resolution 4 times that of a 4K display. Thus it is a perfect product for artists, content creators, video editors and photographers as well as graphic designers. The processors and graphic engines supporting 8K monitor are still to penetrate the market, though this will create an alarming effect for the G-card and processor manufacturers to match the level of display technology and produce compatible hardware.
Thus hoping to see the compatible hardware soon. Thill then may Dell enjoy the royalty to be the pioneer of 8K displays.
