Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 Displays 13K Resolution

GeForce RTX 4090

What are the limits of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 – apart from smoldering cables? A tinkerer has now started an impressive experiment. In the game Genshin Impact, he turned up the resolution as much as possible with maximum graphics quality. 13K are in it.

RTX 4090 Processes 180MP per frame

No, the test YouTuber Golden Reviewer ran on the RTX 4090 doesn’t mean that high-end gaming will be making the jump to 13K resolution anytime soon, without exception. The test object Genshin Impact, as a mobile game with a PC offshoot, is too far removed from significantly more complex titles with its hardware requirements. However, the tinkerer takes on the game at regular intervals to determine how far the performance values ​​can be pushed up with new hardware.

As PCGamesN reports, the YouTuber drew attention to himself at the beginning of October with a video that showed the title in an upscaling resolution of 7K, 6,880 x 2,880 pixels to be precise. The RTX 4090 still manages to hit three-digit FPS numbers at maximum graphics settings and a render resolution of 1:1.

Now Golden Reviewer is back with a new record. Genshin Impact runs in it with a resolution of 13,760 x 5,760 pixels, also at maximum settings, but even at a 1.5 rendering resolution. As the inventor calculates, the RTX 4090 has an impressive rendering task per frame: 13,760 X 5,760 X 1.5 X 1.5 = 178.32 megapixels. However, the system no longer manages more than 30 frames per second in this setting.

13K Is More Than Enough

The YouTuber then uses a fairly simple method to illustrate the impact such a resolution has on the level of detail – after all, nobody currently has a 13K monitor at hand. Even at a zoom level of 500 percent, screenshots of the game still show the finest details and no display artifacts. Also worth mentioning: The RTX 4090, designed for up to 600 watts of power, never exceeded 430 watts in this test.
