    I'm sure professionals will love working at max 30Hz until we get widespread DP 1.4 support

    I know nvidia claim DP 1.4 on GTX 10 series - anyone know if that's genuine full support? AFAICT Polaris only does DP 1.3...

    Let us wait for 6 years for the GPU market to catch up! 8K, niche market for pro photographers etc

    If you can afford $5,000 for this then you aren't worried about the warranty. In fact the way monitor tech is advancing you'll be looking to upgrade to something else then.

    It's no excuse, but I do sometimes think - half the time with these kinds of early-adopter products, after 4 years or so the price of the product has probably dropped so dramatically that it's almost pointless.

    Polaris support DP 1.4, as I believe Pascal does. This monitor is 1.3 and doesn't support DSC though. It can use the two DP connections to stitch an image - so in theory this combined with an RX480/RX470/1070/1080 with two DP outputs can do 8k@60Hz.

    Curious, I checked the AMD website and only saw DP1.3 listed... you'd think they'd make a bigger noise about 1.4, really...

    Finally, a screen that lets me watch 16 1080p porn clips at the same time!

    It's less about worrying about the warranty itself, and more about what Dell thinks how long the monitor will probably last.

    After 60 years we have reached the pinnacle of computing. This can't be topped I predict a long slow decline after this.

    Rubbish - the next logical step is 64, or 32 in an ultrawide solution

    DP 1.4 is just 1.3 with some software changes such as compression; the physical layer is identical and requires no new hardware. In practice any card capable of 1.3 is capable of 1.4 with at most, a software/firmware update. Frankly it might as well be called DP 1.3a.

    Both Polaris and Pascal do Displayport 1.4.

    Personally I'd still much prefer the $5000 OLED monitor they announced at CES last year.
