Dell UltraSharp 32-inch Ultra HD 8K monitor
Dell announced the first 8K monitor at this year’s show, and it’s outfitted with a 32-inch 7680x4320 resolution panel. With over 33 million pixels, it’s as sharp as 16 1080p monitors combined. It’s also a 10-bit monitor, which means it outputs over a billion colors. It’s arguably the best-looking panel we’ve seen yet. We only got to see it with one static image, but it was sharp enough that we couldn’t make out any pixels, even up close, and the Windows icons were so small that they were illegible. All of this comes at a price, however. Dell’s 8K monitor will retail for around $5,000. It will also require two DisplayPort cables. The panel is set to launch on March 23 and is geared towards media production professionals.
