It's an ultra high resolution and IPS technology is a different thing.

Ultra High Definition is a marketing term. It means displays capable of 3840 x 2160 resolution. Which, when viewing things that are filmed with the right technology or rendered really well in the case of CGI, WILL have a ridiculous amount of detail. Once the price on the displays drops pretty low, it's probably what people will be shooting for when it comes to high end gaming rigs. But that will be awhile.

UHD is a resolution standard, 4k and 8k. IPS is the type of panel. They are different things. You can have a monitor with a UHD resolution and an IPS panel.

Ok, so is this monitor an IPS panel? It doesn't seem to say:

Once proper DPI scaling is available in all the major OSes, UHD will become more and more standard. UHD provides benefits in pretty much every area of computer use and it'll finally bring desktop and laptop displays in line with those available on current high end smartphones and tablets. It'll be most noticeable in making text easier to read. Being able to watch 4K movies will only be one of the benefits of an UHD screen and not the main benefit.

No, it is not an IPS panel. It's an ASV panel which is a VA variant by Sharp. I suppose if you had to rank it VA comes somewhere between TN and IPS.
