Most of us are still trying to find the right hardware and applications to justify investment in the show 4k "Normal", but it seems that the technological locomotives on the market are already aimed at completely new areas - which are now starting to take shape and a price that will be a fantasy for many of us. For now.
The most pixels you'll find
In the past few days, Begin has begun selling its products The UltraSharp UP3218K screen Their, behind its somewhat generic name, hides an innovative and particularly impressive technology in the form of a 32-inch IPS panel with an 8K resolution - that is, 7,680 × 4,320 pixels, or 4 times the resolution 4k And 16 from FullHD. Absolutely mad.
This mega-screen includes a refresh rate of 60 Hz, average 400 nit brightness, 1,300 static contrast: 1, 10 bit color gamut, 1.07 (1 billion tones)HDR, At least at the theoretical level), and color calibration directly from the factory, ensuring maximum compatibility with Adobe sRGB standards RGB, The Rec709 and DCI-P3, which it covers almost completely.
In order to push a picture into all these pixels, 33 a million of them, a pair of connections is used DisplayPort 1.4 that they will work in parallel, so that you will also need a suitable graphics card that provides such a pair on the opposite side - and in general with a lot of processing power to perform any action that can bring about this huge resolution.
The UP3128K is characterized by a nominal response time of 6 milliseconds (gray to gray), including a four-link hub USB 3.0 and ergonomic adjustment options at an angle, rotating on an axis, and lifting and lowering. How much will the pleasure cost? 5,000 dollars, no less and no more, as the most advanced computer system fully.
There is no argument that this intimidating display unit is only suited for those who really need to perform professional work on 8K files and content, but even for such a target audience it is hard to see how this insane cost can sound realistic, 4k And quality 5K in less than a fifth of that amount.
Another product that might interest you is LG's new 32UD99, Which includes the best technologies that the Korean manufacturer has to present in the display technologies market - with a resolution 4k, Narrower margins on all four sides of the panel and support for the HDR10 display standard in a high dynamic range that is still an extraordinary ability in the market.
The new model was first unveiled at CES 2017 in January, and is now also available to hit stores and first-time buyers, with a $ 1,000 price tag that may sound almost petty compared to Dell’s new product. In the "real world" the 32nd UD99 is still one of the most expensive screens to be found with a diagonal size of 32 inches, and is mainly suited for design and processing professionals with coverage of over 95 percent of the DCI-P3 standard accepted in these content worlds (and also gaining Acceleration in the last year in the domestic market, mainly due to a push on the part of Apple), and professional color calibration performed for each unit before it leaves the factory gates.
However, the 32 UD99 also does not ignore the gaming world where it may wink at advanced gamers with means, with support for the technologyFreeSync Of VESA for hardware vertical synchronization improves performance, and with a dedicated 'game mode' that eliminates unnecessary processing mechanisms and helps ensure optimal response times in the display, which are set to about 5 milliseconds (gray to gray) very reasonable for a panel in technology IPS In the official specifications.
Screen of iphone LG It also offers two built-in speakers with an impressive power of 5 each (with high-bass rich bass technology), maximum brightness of 550 Nit which is not less than average screens that reach 350 or 400 NIT, hub with two USB connections 3.0 and 3.1 Type-C USB connection that can be used to transmit information and energy simultaneously, as well as an HDMI 2.0a input jack, DisplayPort 1.2 and ergonomic capabilities that include vertical tilt, 90 rotation on the axis, and height adjustment relative to the stand.
Which of these two models is the one that suits you best, or is it a waste of money from your perspective? You are welcome to tell us in comments.
