After LG had already released a revised version of its UltraFine 4K monitor in May, the 5K version followed. The LG UltraFine 5K (5.120 x 2.880 pixels) is a 27" display and as before equipped with Thunderbolt 3 and three USB-C (USB 3.1 Gen 1 with 5 Gbit/s) ports. Its 10-bit IPS panel has an above-average brightness of 500 nits and supports the DCP-P3 color space. Stereo speakers, camera and a microphone are integrated in the monitor.
A notebook connected via Thunderbolt 3 such as the MacBook Pro or MacBook Air can be powered with up to 94 watts - the three USB-C ports serve as a hub for further peripheral devices. USB-C can also be used to connect an iPad Pro to use the monitor as a large display.
Apple LG UltraFine 5K
The Ultrafine 5K weighs 8.5 kg and comes with a 2m Thunderbolt 3 cable and 1.5m USB C cable. It costs around 1,400 euros and is available immediately. In autumn, Apple&s own 10-bit HDR 6K Pro Display XDR will be launched on the market, but it will cost from 5,000 dollars (partly because of the 1,000 nits brightness).
