Looking for a new 8k monitor? The race is on as Dell’s 8K monitor might make it to stores before the 8K iMac can be seen. Apple’s 8K monitor looks like it is going to be produced by LG with new backlighting leds to reduce the amount of power the hungry iDisplay needs. Let’s hope Dell can do the same.
Both will be using the DisplayPort 1.3 connection to make full use of the bandwidth.
