Dell Working on 21:9 1440p IPS Cinema Display

Recently, Dell announced its 24-inch 4K UltraSharp screen (UP2414Q) and its 28-inch 4K UltraSharp display (P2815Q). Now a rumor has surfaced about another model, though this time it's not a 4K unit.

The monitor in question is expected to be called the U3415W; it is a  24-inch monitor with a rather unusual resolution: 3440 by 1440. This gives it an aspect ratio of 21:9 – making it a 'cinema' display.

Dell's U2913WM, now add 5 inches to the diagonal and a bunch more pixels.

Beyond the notion that it will feature an IPS display made by LG, little more is known about the monitor. In fact, it is still a rumor, so it could all be a bunch of hogwash.

There was no official word on pricing, though the report indicates that the display might already be formally announced around the end of December, though it wouldn't be surprising if it was later.

    And here I am trying to decide if I should pick up a 2nd 1080p monitor.

    Aw! I was just thinking how I'd like a 21:9 monitor that was greater than 1080p. Couldn't find one, so I decided to get two U2412M. Just ordered less than a week ago. sadface.jpg

    Why don't monitors come in 40 inches and up? It'd be nice to have big low input display in the living room for some couch/ steam box gaming.

    The only thing I think about after 1080p is that I will need a beefier GPU to run my games on high.

    My understanding is that the upcoming 28" 4k monitor isn't an UltraSharp, evidenced by its name (P2815Q) and its lower price tag.

    been using a 30" 2560x1600 for years so I'm not seeing this as practical. Its actually a very small screen as the wider it is, the smaller it is for any given diagonal size. Websites are still designed for tall screens. Wide just doesn't work for anything other then movies unless the screen is very large and has high res. I'll get another 2 30" monitors when they come down in price a little.

    "The monitor in question is expected to be called the U3415W; it is a 24-inch monitor "

    I think there is a typo there. If the model number is U3415W, then it is 34 inches, not 24.

    This is pointless, since everyone nowadays has a Smart TV. Since i have a Smart TV, there's no way i'm watching movies on my monitor, no matter how big and good is.
