Dell 5K Dis­play

Mac Format - - GADGETS - £TBA

What is it? This 27-inch dis­play has a frankly lu­di­crous res­o­lu­tion of 5120x2880 – nearly 15 megapix­els! It makes 4K look… well, just a lit­tle bit lower res, re­ally. When’s it due? Be­fore the end of 2014. Why are we ex­cited? 27 inches, you say? Why, that’s the size of the cur­rent largest iMac. And 5120x2880 pix­els, you say!? Why, that’s ex­actly dou­ble the res­o­lu­tion of the 27-inch iMac’s 2560x1440 cur­rent dis­play! Yes, what Dell has an­nounced here is ba­si­cally a Retina 27-inch iMac screen. Of course, this is sim­ply a huge num­ber of pix­els to power, and re­ally you’d need some­thing not far off the Mac Pro’s power to run things smoothly. Will we see a new, very ex­pen­sive iMac with beefy specs run­ning this dis­play? Maybe, but in the mean­time, any­one look­ing to do pro­fes­sional level 4K video edit­ing or high-end pho­tog­ra­phy (and own­ing a Mac Pro) will find them­selves drool­ing over this.
