Apple Unveils New Pro Display XDR


Pro Display XDR features a 32-inch Retina 6K display with P3 wide and 10-bit colour, 1,600 nits of peak brightness, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a super-wide viewing angle.

The new display features a 32-inch LCD panel with a 6016 x 3384 Retina 6K resolution and more than 20 million pixels. The Pro Display XDR delivers a nearly 40 percent more screen real estate than a Retina 5K display.

It includes a P3 wide colour gamut and true 10-bit colour for over 1 billion colours. Pro Display XDR also features the industry’s best polariser technology, delivering a superwide, colour-accurate, off-axis viewing angle, so now multiple people can view more accurate content simultaneously.

To manage reflected light, Pro Display XDR has an industry-leading anti-reflective coating and offers an innovative new matte option called nano-texture, with glass etched at the nanometer level for low reflectivity and less glare.

The new Pro Display XDR uses a direct backlighting system with a large array of LEDs that produce 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness and 1,600 nits of peak brightness, far surpassing that of a typical display.

It includes an advanced thermal system that uses its aluminium lattice pattern as a heat sink, Pro Display XDR can sustain 1,000 nits of full-screen brightness indefinitely, something that has never been possible before on a display with this resolution.

The Pro Display XDR will be available this Spring but pricing for Australia has not yet been announced. US pricing for Pro Display XDR starts at $4,999, the Pro Stand is $999 and the VESA Mount Adapter is $199.

The extreme pricing for the monitor stand has been mocked widely on social media.
