Dell's exquisitely detailed UltraSharp 32 8K monitor is now up for grabs — if you just so happen to have a spare $5,000 lying around, that is. Now on sale direct from Dell, the (decidedly unsexy sounding) UP3218K may cost an arm and a leg (and another leg), but it promises an insane amount of detail and excellent color accuracy.

The display itself is packed inside of a relatively staid exterior typical of Dell monitors. At 31.5 inches, the 7680x4320 resolution comes out to 280ppi. Aside from packing a crazy 33.2 million pixels into that space, Dell is touting the UP3218K color accuracy as one of its strong points. Aimed squarely at professionals, the monitor sports wide color coverage of industry standards (100% AdobeRGB, 100% sRGB, 100% Rec. 709, 98% DCI-P3) and excellent color depth.

At a price of $5,000, the UP3218K is definitely one for a specific subset of users — and that's OK. Most people are having a hard enough time finding 4K content to check out, not to mention 8K. That said, if you're a professional in the market for a new display, or simply have plenty of extra cash to blow, you can grab this monitor direct from Dell now ahead of an estimated April 14 ship date. And if you're on the fence, we took a look at the UP3218K during CES this year; check that out below.
