That’s not a typo, Dell really are about to release a 5K monitor! The UP2715K packs a stunning 5120 x 2880 resolution display into a 27″ Crystal Clear panel. To put 5K into perspective, you’ll find a 4K panel represents 8.3 megapixels, which is nothing compared to the 14.7 megapixels of the 5K panel, a whopping 70% more pixels!

You can’t even run 5K over DisplayPort, the new Dell monitor was running off of two DisplayPort 1.2 ports via a Quadro K5000 card.

The panel features 218 pixels per square inch, a colour depth of 1 billion and features an extra miniDisplayPort to be used in 4K mode. No information on panel type, but given that this is a high-end flagship monitor, we doubt it will be a TN panel.

The monitor is set to be release later this year with a price of $2,499.99, a lot less than I was expecting, but still more money than I’ll be spending on monitors this year.

Thank you MaximumPC for providing us with this information.
