Dell’s 8K Monitor – Gaming, Video Creation & Consumption!

August 28, 2019


Dell’s groundbreaking 8k monitor the last time i checked out one of these, was on a crowded show floor and to say that that one was a little pre-production, would be an understatement. But, Dell has been hard at work for months on their aptly named UP321 8K and the finished product is now in our hands for evaluation as a content creation device, a content consumption device, and last but not least, we uh might fire up some games on it Synergy is the software that lets you share your mouse and keyboard between multiple computers. Check it out now at the link in the video desciption. Wait for it *waauughh, waugh, wau* *more inaudible noises* PWAaatch goh- I’m going too early Here we go, it’s alive 8k resolution at 60 Hertz. Everything about the ultra-sharp UP321 is either state of the art like the aluminium built quality, hyper thin infinity edge key embezzles and glass front OR it makes state of the art look like an antique. The specs of this thing are absolutely unreal. It comes tuned out of the box with an individual calibration report that promises Delta E values of less than 2 and full yes, one-hundred percent coverage of the Adobe RGB colorspace. It’s got 400 nit-peak brightness, which is rock solid for a non-HDR panel, though a little more on that later. And a static contrast ratio of thirteen-hundred to one; which is outstanding for an IPS panel type. But that ignores the most obvious calling card of this utterly unique product.The 8K resolution 10 bit, 60 Hertz panel. I mean, this is so far out ahead of the curve, that we don’t even have a display interface that can handle it yet. Like, early 4K displays with display port 1.1 input it needs 2 connections to the computer to run at its maximum 60 Hertz refresh rate, but there’s a big difference; these are display port 1.4 ports. Well hold on a minute Linus, DP1.2 can handle 4K 60 Hertz no problem, and 1.4 has about double that bandwidth. Why do we need 2 of those? Aaahahhh hahah; because 8K is more than twice as many pixels as 5K 4 times as many as 4K, and a whopping 16 times the pixel count of 10 ADP. We’re talking thirty-three megapixels, 60 times per second. And until video card makers implement DSC or Display Stream Compression, the only way to push this many pixels is gonna be to add more cords. I have some good news too, though. Dell has a lot of experience building high-end displays and it really shows, unlike early dual-input 4K monitors there’s no flakiness, where half of the display looks a little different from the other half, or where one side will refuse to turn on sometimes. In fact, you can even just yank out one of the cables and the only effect that you’ll see is that the entire display will now be running at 30 Hertz instead of 60; and from what I’ve seen plugging it back in is an equally seamless transition. And all of this experience carries over to the physical design as well. In spite of the panel’s weight, heat, and power consumption characteristics they managed an internal power supply with passive cooling and all the creature comforts that creatives are used to.

  1. Linuys: "If I would to critisize something, I wouldn't mind some some basic built in speakers for emergencies"
    Dell: "You heard him guys, lets put some basic 2w speakers for emergencies"
    Linus: "The speakers on this premium 8k monitor are shit!"
    Dell: "God fucking dammit!"

  2. Oh man! I just got a 32" 4k monitor from Samsung (UJ59) and it is AMAZING! I can play most modern titles made in 2018 at maxish settings @ 60FPS!
    Thanks to my beast setup, an RTX2080ti, i7-8700k, 32GB of 2400MHz RAM, and liquid cooling to top it off. AND! I also got all this at the young age of 19.
    AND! Not thanks to my parents, but with about 8 months of working in a factory from 3AM-3PM Mon-Thur. 🙂 I also have an HTC Vive.
    My goal later on in my life is to have an 8k monitor, another RTX2080ti w/NVLink to play games at maxish settings at 60FPS in 8k, and to also play VR in 4k. 😀

  3. Just wait fellas, remember how 10 years ago that true 4k gaming was impossible? Now in 2019 you can game at 4k 144Hz!
    Which is thanks to new monitor technologies, and the biggest breakthrough in graphics card linking technology which is NVLink from Nvidia.
    Just imagine 10 years from now, I imagine we will be able to game at 8k 144Hz! Dual graphics card setups will become normal, and technology will become even more cheaper. 🙂

  4. Thanks for mentioning GLASS FRONT I was looking for that in many videos and reviews and no one had mentioned it!!!! again Thank you. No Glass front is a deal breaker for me

  5. I was looking at DP cables since im getting a new monitor soon.. and decided to just grab an 8k compatible cable cause it was cheap, and that way i knew i wasnt getting something that wouldnt work..

    New gpu also "Technically" supports 8k, but i had completely forgotten about this video and that 8k displays where publically available.

  6. A similar screen [55 "] of 8K (7680 × 5320) at this same distance [1m] exceeds the eye with 20 ppi so in this case we would need a large room with a distance of at least 5 meters to enjoy in completely this resolution. In other words companies like Dell will brainwash you to buy their products. 8K is completely useless.

  7. TF2 is really lightweight, I still use this pc to play it CPU: Info.
    CPU SPEED: 1.7 GHz Processor or better.
    RAM: 512 MB.
    OS: Windows® 7 (32/64-bit)/Vista/XP.
    VIDEO CARD: Info.
    FREE DISK SPACE: 15 GB.
    I can confirm this game still runs at 60fps 4K.

  8. i have to wonder is 8k even possible the current gen and 2+ gen graphics cards when have issues in processing 4k and 4khdr content at this stage how much ram will we need to process 8k on the gpu let alone the system ram that will likely be a need as an offset to process 8k without crashing programs to the desktop…

  9. What was the computer case and where do I get it? That's the only thing I might be able to afford in this video 🤣

  10. Are there any noticable slowdown in photoshop ? 8K sounds perfect for photo editing and all pixel interpolation issues should be eliminated.

  11. Am I only person who tryst to test there wifi by watching YouTube in 8k on only a 4k monitor

  12. HDMI 2.1 should handle 120hz 10k and probably 144hz 8k. Now that I think about it are 2019 monitors basically caught up with HDMI 2.1?

  13. Everyone: “aWw mAn DeLl sUx dOnt BUy DeLl”

    Dell: makes 8K monitor

    Everyone: “DeLl’s tHe BeST¡”

  14. On the topic of there being not much 8k content… Imax film is the equivalent of 18k horizontal resolution. Which means that it is technically possible to scan every Imax film and produce 8k content.

  15. Linus! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? THAT 8K MONITOR IS NOT DOUBLE THE RESOLUTION OF A 5K MONITOR! It would have to be a 10K monitor to be double the resolution of a 5k monitor. An 4k monitor is double the resolution of a 1080p monitor and a 8k monitor is double the resolution of a 4k monitor. THOSE ARE THE PROPER VALUES!

  16. Whats do you think is more important, refresh rate or pixels/pixels per inch? I care more for refresh rate because I notice it at 60hz. I am wanting the 49'' ultrawide monitor xD
