Won't come cheap

US HARDWARE FIRM Dell has launched a 4K monitor, cramming a 3840x2160 resolution into a 24in IPS panel.

Named the Dell UP2414Q, the display is geared towards graphic designers or professionals in the creative sector, such as video editing, CGI animation or application and game development.

Dell said, "Our highest pixel density sharpens the tiniest details in videos and images for stunning results."

The UP2414Q features a technology Dell called "Premiercolor", which it said provides "true colour accuracy as well as 99 percent AdobeRGB and 100 percent sRGB coverage".

Dell also promised ultra-wide viewing angles with the UP2414Q, alongside tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment features to enable "an uninhibited view".

With an 8-bit panel, the UP2414Q boasts "Advanced Frame Rate Control" which claims to simulate 10-bit colour. It can handle frame rates of up to 30Hz on HDMI 2.0 and 60Hz via Displayport 1.2.

The monitor is shown off on Dell's website but there's no pricing or availability information yet. When it does launch in the UK, we can imagine it won't come cheap.

When Asus unveiled its 31.5in LED backlit 4K Ultra HD display in July, the Taiwanese hardware firm gave it a price of $3,499, or about £2,300. Perhaps Dell's 4K resolution monitor will be more realistically priced. µ
