“Dell has just announced a brand-new 27inch external display with an insane resolution of 5120×2880. Pixel counts of this magnitude were thought to be several months out, stretching into mid 2015, so Dell’s abrupt announcement has come as a bit of surprise,” Benjamin Mayo reports or 9to5Mac. “The 27-inch panel has 14 million pixels across its surface, resulting in a PPI of 218. This is the same density as a 15inch Retina MacBook Pro, but obviously much much larger.”
Mayo reports, “What’s notable about this resolution is it shows that a Retina iMac is now very feasible. 5120×2880 is exactly double 2560×1440 — the resolution of the current 27 inch iMac. Using the panel in this monitor, Apple could potentially release a Retina 27-inch iMac (at @2x scale) this year.”
