Upgrading from 6.x to 8.x

We've been using PPro for the last few years. Our workflow shifted to 4K before we expected it would and at the time, Adobe was the easy solution. What this created was a gap in our Avid upgrades. We currently have a Nitris DX at MC6.x, HP Z820, 16 cores, 32 gig of ram. Win 7 Pro.

Since I've been out of the loop, I've missed a lot of the conversation about upgrades. I have the software part figured out but I'm curious how much if any use the Nitris box has at this point. Can it be upgraded or are there other hardware options supported? At this point I'm thinking monitoring would be my main concern. Has Avid solved the 4K display issues that were around last year?

We also have a Blackmagic UltraStudio 4K. Perhaps this would allow me to monitor 4K over thunderbolt from the HP?

Any guidance or recommendations would be much appreciated.
