    Does this thing even work on consumer-level GPUs? I think at least nvidia doesn't allow 8K on anything less than Quadro cards? Or was that 10K?

    My GTX970 can drive it. For whatever purpose this panel was made. Probably media editing.

    edit: nope. Way too mich pixels.

    " I guess we should call it a 5K costing 8K model ;)"

    Think you meant an 8k costing 5k :nerd:

    8K? On 32 inch? Useless.

    And I don't buy this "media editing"... at 8K it is impossible to edit anything without using huge magnification, up to the point when visible "pixels" size is the same as on any 1080p screen.
    And using 8K on 32 inch just to "appreciate" the final result is plain stupid, and actually still useless, because at such tiny pixels it is almost impossible to see the difference with smaller resolution version.

    RX 480 can run an 8k monitor it seems... DP 1.4 connectors.

    I think this monitor is using DP 1.3 (two of them) to run this, unless they have changed that of course since showing of the prototype

    Can we all please stop the nonsense complaining?

    It's about getting closer and closer to "reality", as reality doesn't have pixels. The universe is "almost" continuous ( atoms being the smallest "pixel" )

    Obviously, display panels don't need to get their pixels to the atom level, but a level small enough so no matter how close my nose is to the screen I won't see pixels, and any line at any angle is perfectly smooth, like drawn on paper with a pencil... I'll take that !

    GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 can also run at 8k resolution :)

    Absolutely love the way Dell pushes the envelope. I do wonder what connectivity this might have. Single DP 1.4 should be able to handle it, but Dell tends to use older standards and compensates with having to use multiple cables. Not that there's that much wrong with it, but less cables is always better. (Plus it removes potential issues area)

    Edit:
    Well, it's 2 x DP (ver 1.4) for 60Hz.

    I'm running 4K on 32" with no scaling and it's perfect. If things got any smaller than this it would be too difficult to use efficiently. I wouldn't mind seeing what the use cases would be for this though.

    This is probably aimed at Hospitals.

    I could never imagine needing more than my 40 inch 4k monitor we need more power to drive these dam things ( or at least I do )

    All that res and stuck at 60hz. I know we wont get near shifting pixels at a decent framerate on this for a while but to think itll still look like a juddering mess at its hz limit is a shame. This is not a gaming monitor.

    60hz gaming is borderline peasantry in space year 2017 .
