Yes it can. But the bits and nits spec is not good enough for a true 4k experience. It is however compensated by the HDR feature. It's native resolution is still full hd only.

Current price in Dell website at S$499.00
Thanks for responding.

So the true pixel count is 1920x1080.

What's the effect of inputting 4K over hdmi 2.0 to the monitor?

Also by nits you are referring to cd/m2?

Yes. I guess enhanced?

No impact, in fact better quality. Windows will only warn that it is native to full hd. Not stopping you for making the changes.

Yes. At one point I thought I read that the nits is 400 (in other country manual).. but apparently when it appeared in SG website it was 250..

I was comparing the monitor list of dell, only the Dell S2718H monitor is described that has 6 bit + FRC.. Other 4k monitors are probably (true) 8 bit. HDR 10 should use 10 bits Dolby Vision is 12 bits.

windows recognises 4K as an EID resolution without the need for AMD/Nvidia virtual super res?

So 4K input will be downscaled to 1080p?

Yeah I noticed quite a bit of discrepancies between different marketing material..

Thanks for giving first hand information

Not sure what you meant.. What I think of this monitor is that it is marketed as a full hd monitor.. Add bells and whistles like the HDR and you have a pseudo 4k monitor.
