Sharp introduced 8K-monitor that in terms of the density of pixels per inch on par with Apple’s smartphone. Presentation of the novelties was held at the exhibition CeaTech 2016.
At a resolution of 7680 × 4320 dots monitor has an IGZO panel. With such a screen for the PC is unlikely to need additional displays; however, in mode 100% zoom elements of the OS on the screen will be very small. But the point density was reached, the printing level is 326 dpi. The same density of pixels per inch is characterized by a display panel of the iPhone 7.
In addition, the device boasts 10-bit color performance, support for HDR and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The monitor maximum brightness declared equal to 1000 CD/m2, although it is unclear why he is important.
By themselves characteristics for this class of devices is impressive. No less amazing is the fact that to transfer such a huge amount of data (about 15GB/s) is required to use as many as 8 ports DisplayPort.
Modern cards new is clearly not in the teeth, but the solution of NVIDIA Volta and AMD Vega already may be able to use this monitor, even with multiple DisplayPort cables. But a steady 60 fps in games at this resolution will have to wait quite a long time.
In any case, it will not have much time before the moment on the market in droves will appear monitors 8K.
