For professional quality computer graphics displays, bigger really is better and Dell just proved the point. Available this spring, the company has created an ultra HD desktop monitor capable of a 7680 x 4320 resolution in a 32″ screen.

The Dell UltraSharp 32 8K Monitor: UP3218K ($5,000) displays 8K at 280ppi and 1.07 billion colors that cover 100% of the AdobeRGB and sRGB gamuts. For wide color photography, the Dell 8K provides 98% of the DCI-P3 color space. An example of how clear this monitor is, the 280ppi is roughly equivalent to a 300dpi printed picture. This also allows you to see every pixel from a photograph taken with an 8K digital camera.

The aluminum construction keeps the monitor from being excessively heavy or bulky so it can adjust for height, pivot, tilt, or swivel as needed. You will need to use two DisplayPort 1.3 cables to handle the amount of data the monitor requires but it does stitch the streams together seamlessly. For $5,000 the Dell 8K will mostly be used for professional purposes but amateurs can dream about it until time brings the price down to Earth.
