Not much of an upgrade. 4K is already out dated and horribly inadequate for use today. 5K is just not enough of an improvement, they need to move to at least 8K, and also Make plans for a 16K display

Imagine how awesome 16K HD cat videos would look.

I was trying to find an "appropriate" comment for that...but I can't. Lets just say it's not exactly referring to cats, but part of the female anatomy and how "detailed" it would look in 16K RES.

How about a ~1000.00 38" 4K IPS Display @ 60Hz?

I feel like 4K's DPI at 27" is too high...I can barely differentiate pixels on a 27" 1440p display at 40 inches viewing distance.

So 4K is still expensive and require expensive video card to run and isn't common or relevant for screens under 26'' but they already want to sell us 5K monitor ?

I have a 23'' monitor at 1080P and i don't see why i would even change for a 4K.

This is UHD+ (5120x2880). Not 5K (5120x2160).

Why are we calling the UHD standard 4K—despite being a lower resolution—but calling this UHD+ monitor 5K despite it being a higher resolution?

Did you read the story? "...and it is aimed at professionals who need the highest display resolutions possible". I'm willing to bet that you and most of the commentators on this display are not part of that group. Depending on your definition of "professional", a $2499 5k monitor may be a valid business expense.

This seems weird, 4K isn't even standard yet (in the gaming world anyways) and I'd be willing to bet most users are still using 1080P or lower at this time. I'm assuming that something like this would be employed in a game development studio for modeling characters and such.

I have 3 30" at 2560x1600. I am very happy with the DPI on them. I'm not upgrading till 4K comes in 35" or bigger as my eye sight isn't that good to see higher DPI. I'm not putting my face right up to it so I can see that the pixels are smaller. A 16x10 4K at 35-40" @60Hz or higher is what I'm waiting for now.

They are going crazy in resolution department and we still have tons of applications that take no use of the more than 4 cores CPUs and GPUs are only mild upgrade to the last generation ...they even push 1440p in phones... what`s with this crazy rush about resolution anyway ?

And normal TV seems to be a dieing breed since they can`t push even 720p trough satellite at decent prices, everywhere HD TVs/smart etc and most of the stations are still SD, they just started to adapt 16:9 ...For now everything seems to be a huge mess ...

Possibly in future but as of now there is nothing to put out such high resolution even if professional so it must be up-scaled. Typical Apple, just being bigger = better just like Sharp and their ridiculous sized shit TVs just to snag people.

Not even the Quadro6000 can put out that much, it's max is 4096x2160@50Hz

This is the biggest joke I've ever seen. Please show me professionals demanding higher than 4K and what they will do with it. Most creation professionals haven't even caught up to 4K yet.
4 + 1 = 5. (5 - 4) / 4 * 100 = 25% BETTER!!! BUY NOW

I can see solo pros moving up to 4K eventually (via 2560x1440 first maybe), but some larger companies
are already working with 8K material for film (I know of one in London/Soho).

27" screen = fail

I have a 1600p, 30" monitor, and my desktop is a little too small as it is. 5k is more than twice that resolution, and 27" is a physically smaller screen. that desktop is going to be impossible to read. I wouldn't buy a 4k or 5k screen that isn't at least 36". and 16:9 is a wasted opportunity, they really should go with 16:10.
