New Dell LCD: 5K Resolution Desktop Monitor!

Dell Ultra Sharp 5K Monitor

With the forthcoming UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K, Dell is kicking off the 5K resolution revolution if you’re in the market for a real expensive Christmas present. Take an exclusive look at the upcoming Dell UP2715K, the first commercial desktop monitor 5K display.

What’s 27 inches across and has almost twice the pixel count of your puny 4K monitor? Dell’s new UltraSharp 5K monitor, that’s what. With a resolution of 5120×2880, the 27-inch monster has seven times as many pixels as your 1080p monitor, or four times as many as your 2560×1440 (1440p) monitor. It has a PPI of 218, which puts it on about par with the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display (2880×1800). When it goes on sale around Christmas time — for $2500 — it will finally replace IBM’s mythical 13-year-old T220/T221 as the highest-res desktop monitor.

Updated @ 14:45, October 16: Apple has announced a 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K display. You get a 5K display and a complete computer… for $2,500.
