Look, that 4K monitor you just spent a king's ransom on isn't obsolete, but it's no longer cutting edge. How can that be? You can thank Dell for deciding that 8,294,400 pixels (3840x2160) just isn't enough, so it's going to release a 5K panel with a 5120x2880 resolution. That works out to 14,745,600 pixels, nearly twice as many as today's 4K monitors.

The UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor is the world's first display with an Ultra HD 5K resolution. It's equivalent to four times the resolution of QHD and seven times the resolution of Full HD. Now imagine packing all those pixels on a 27-inch panel -- pretty gnarly, right?

Dell 5K Monitor

Forget about running Dell's 5K monitor with a single cable -- as presently constructed, it takes a pair of DisplayPort 1.2 cables to drive this. While Dell didn't come out and say it, we can reasonably surmise this sucker's sporting a pair of panels inside using MST (Multi-Stream Transport) to present them as a single display.

The monitor will also feature Dell's PremierColor technology, anti-smudge and anti-reflective edge-to-edge glass, six USB ports, a media card reader, and integrated 16W Harmon Kardon speakers.

Look for the Dell UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor to be available in the fourth quarter for $2,500 MSRP.

I'm extremely disappointed they decided to not make this a True HD screen--or one with a 16:10 ratio. What's the point having a product that's obviously intended for professionals not be dimensions optimized to get professional things done.

You have to wait till DisplayPort 1.3 to even dream such a thing reliably. Majority of those who are even remotely of even thinking of gaming 4K w/ something like a 120MHZ will have to wait till DisplayPort 1.3.


Asus themselves stated so, knowing that serious and competitive gamers wil be better off with their line of high-end monitors specifically suited for high-end gaming like the Asus ROG Swift (their flagship) w/ GSync or a BenQ equivalent coming soon.


These monitors aren't for gamers, but they're teased to them occasionally, like the TitanZ.


Gamers are better suited having IPS WQHD displays with GSync, 120Mhz displays. It's a no brainer.


That said, monitor manufacturers have had to start somewhere. It can only get better as DisplayPort 1.3 is available and the inevitable Thunderbolt 3.


NVLink beasts from Nvidia and the things AMD is thinking up for their GPUs also makes it more sane to wait. There's a reason no PC manufactor dared to really create any desktop beasts this Fall until PCIe4, DDR4 Ram, Intel Skylake, and Sata Express are available.
