Rated Power Consumption
Usually with all of these amount of pixels(33.2M) @Hz the monitor will need alot of bandwidth. It comes with 2x DisplayPort(DP) of 1.4 which has a transfer rate of 32.4 GBits/s. Which will go directly into your graphics card.
In terms of gaming, well it quiet OK, as it not a gaming monitor, but with these many pixels it very hard for even GTX 1080ti In SLI to keep up.
Dell Ultrasharp UP3218K Price
Dell’s UP3218K is now available to purchase on Dell’s website for $4999. Currently taking pre-orders. But at $5000 it quiet expensive as you expect, as the first 8K monitor. But after a year or two it should be affordable for average consumers.
