Intel & Samsung Partner to Offer Affordable 4K Monitors  Print E-mail

At the Computex trade show in Taiwan, Intel and Samsung have announced plans to offer more affordable 4K resolution monitors to consumers. Currently, around 90 percent of monitors feature a resolution of 1080p or lower, and Intel believes that this is due to prohibitively high Ultra HD pricing. Together, both companies are working to change this, providing cheaper 4K models that will help increase user adoption.

To this end, Intel and Samsung hope to bring a 23.6-inch PLS 4K monitor to the market for a retail price of around $399, which is considerably lower than current 4K monitor options. Intel is also aiming to provide Intel based All-in-One 4K systems to customers at a starting price point of around $999. The displays will use PLS (Plane to Line Switching) technology which offers similar quality to IPS panels and will feature 3840 x 2160 resolutions with 100 percent sRGB coverage and Technicolor certification.

Exact details on the nature of Intel and Samsung's partnership have not been disclosed. Likewise, while Intel has stated that it has a structured plan in place to help deliver the cheaper 4K monitors, there is no current timetable available for their release.
