We already have $10 10K HDMI video cables on sale – so where are these cheap 8K monitors?

I can confess that I am a huge cheerleader for 8K resolution on desktop monitors for years. Why not? The geometric progression of resolution, which has seen the number of pixels (and average screen size) increase from Full HD to 4K over the past decade, has allowed consumers and businesses to take advantage of multi-screen virtual displays. Remember that a single 43-in 4K monitor is the equivalent of four Full HD 21.5-inch monitors, without the hassle of purchasing additional cables and monitor arms.

So when Dell released its first (and still only) 8K monitor six years ago (yes, six) I expected the floodgates to open, especially since it retails for several thousand British pounds/US dollars/Australian dollars. The UP3218 remains the only 8K monitor and is ironically already outdated as it does not support HDMI 2.1. Almost a year ago I did wrote that I don’t believe 8K monitors will ever go mainstreamnow I’m not even sure if many 8K monitors will be launched.
