Dell will market two new upcoming 4K computer monitors, a format arising in coming quarters driven by the Intel agreement with manufacturers to lower the price to $399.
The new Dell 4K monitors are P2415Q and P2715Q, both with IPS panels with native resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels with respective sizes of 23.8 and 27 inches diagonally.
The smallest has a response time of 8 ms and a brightness level of 300 cd / m2, while the larger provides 350 cd / m2 brightness. The two share a static contrast ratio of 1,000: 1, viewing angles of 178 degrees and 99% support of sRGB color gamut.

The stated goal is to offer 4K monitors from $399 on base models with screen sizes of 23 inches, while the AIOs computers ‘all in one’ 4K screen would cost $999.
