RTX 4090 has to process 180 megapixels per frame
No, the proof that the youtuber gold reviewers with the RTX 4090 doesn’t mean high-end games are going to be making the jump to 13K resolution anytime soon, bar none. The Genshin Impact test object, as a mobile game with a PC branch, is too far removed from significantly more complex titles with their hardware requirements. However, the technician takes on the game at regular intervals to determine to what extent the performance values can be increased with the new hardware.
What PCGamingN reported, the YouTuber drew attention to himself in early October with a video showing the title in an enhanced 7K resolution, 6,880 x 2,880 pixels to be precise. The RTX 4090 still manages to hit triple-digit FPS numbers at maximum graphics settings and a 1:1 render resolution.
Now Golden Reviewer is back with a new record. Genshin Impact runs on it at a resolution of 13,760 x 5,760 pixels, also at maximum settings, but even at 1.5 render resolution. As calculated by the inventor, 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 configuration.
RTX 4090 stays in the 400 watt range
Nice to look at
The YouTuber then uses a fairly simple method to illustrate the impact such resolution has on the level of detail; after all, no one currently has a 13K monitor handy. Even at a 500 percent zoom level, in-game screenshots still show the finest details and show no artifacts. Also worth mentioning: the RTX 4090, designed for up to 600 watts of power, never exceeded 430 watts in this test.
