Experience realistic images like never before on the award-winning, world’s first 31.5″ 8K monitor featuring Dell PremierColor.Dell new 32-inch, 8K desktop monitor with 1.07 billion colors, aluminum construction, 100 percent coverage of the AdobeRGB and sRGB color gamuts, and a monster $4,999 price.
The UP3218K has a resolution of 7680 x 4320 (for a pixel density of 280ppi), which is as many pixels as you’d get from four 4K displays or 16 Full HD panels.
“Dell PremierColor offers wide color coverage that meets major industry standards—100 percent AdobeRGB, 100 percent sRGB, 100 percent Rec. 709, 98 percent DCI-P3—for immaculate, unwavering colors,” Dell says.
The panel itself is also rated highly with a myriad of other tech specs, including 1300:1 contrast ratio, 400 nit brightness and full support for Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces.
The panel is IPS just like all of Apple’s laptops and iMacs, so it features strong vibrant color and wide 178° viewing angles. It also displays 98% of the DCI-P3 color space for wide color photography and video.
Because a single DisplayPort cannot carry enough bandwidth to push 7680×4320 pixel buffers at 60Hz, to use the monitor you have to dual-link. This means plugging in two DisplayPort 1.3 cables; the monitor then stitches the two display streams together.
Many people are raising concerns about the price but I strongly believe that with time the price will definitely come down so that everyone can afford.
