Among all the new monitors announced at CES this year, none was as impressive as Dell’s new UP3218K. The 32-inch monitor offers 7680 x 4320 (8K) resolution with a 60 Hz native refresh rate, making it the world’s first 32-inch 8K monitor. In terms of pixel density, the UP3218K panel has a PPI rating of 280, which is highly impressive for a desktop monitor.
In terms of pixels, the monitor packs 33 million + pixels, roughly four times as much as a 4K display. In addition to offering a ridiculously high display resolution, the monitor impresses in other areas as well. The panel boasts of a high contrast ratio of 1,300:1, which is higher than your average IPS monitor. The monitor also boasts of 100 percent sRGB and Adobe RGB color space coverage, along with a peak brightness of 400 nits. That may not be as bright as an HDR monitor, but it still is quite impressive for a desktop monitor. On the connectivity front, the monitor offers two DisplayPort 1.3 connectors, 3 USB 3.0 ports (1 featuring BCI .2 charging support), and an audio line-out. The monitor is set to go on sale in the US by March 23 at a steep $4,999.
Dell also announced the S2718D Ultrathin “infinityEdge” monitor with Quad HD resolution and USB Type-C connectivity. The key highlight of the monitor is its striking design with a slim base and Dell HDR feature. It too is slated to be available directly from Dell in the US starting March 23 for $699.99
