Dell Ups the Competition by a K with new 5K Monitor

While most of the production world longs to add a 4K monitor to their desktop setups, Dell has announced the imminent release of their latest high resolution monitor, the UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor.

While the leap from 4K to 5K might not sound like much, consider the difference in pixel count: 4K monitors have a pixel count of 8,294,400, while this new UltraSharp has a count of 14,745,600.

Nearly double the resolution of 4K and seven times the resolution of 1080p.

The resolution is 5,120 x 2,880, or precisely double the resolution of a 27" iMac…so essentially, this is a 27" retina display, for all intents and purposes.

More details are yet to come from Dell, such as refresh rates, but we know that the monitor has 6 USB ports, a card reader, a pair of 16W Harman Kardon speakers, and will retail for $2500 USD when it lands in Q4 of this year.
