What’s better than a few million colours on a monitor? 1 billion.
Samsung has announced that its 28-inch 4K UD590 monitor will soon be available in the US for the paltry sum of $700. The UD590 packs a 28-inch 3840×2160 TN panel (157 PPI), capable of displaying 10-bit color (1 billion colors) at 60Hz with 1ms GTG response time.
In addition to that stunner of a display, it does Picture-in-Picture, with no downgrading in resolution as you move to a smaller frame. There’s also a dual-screen feature called Picture-by–Picture, which you could theoretically use for split-screen gaming, even though this was really designed with creative pros in mind.
The 28-inch 4K monitor comes with model number UD590 and a $699.99 pre-order price tag. That’s a lot for a monitor, but you don’t have a lot of choices when it comes to 4K. Those that do exist have been considerably more expensive, as much as several thousand dollars.
