Microsoft puts Windows 8 to the challenge by configuring a gaming PC featuring an incredible 12K resolution with an ASUS HD 7970 and an AMD 7970 graphics card in Crossfire mode to power 3 Sharp PN-K321 4K 32-inch monitors at 60 frames per second.
Each Sharp monitor had a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels, for a total screen resolution of 11520×2160 when combining three of these beasts. Microsoft also had to install a special driver package developed by AMD, and only then was Windows 8 able to generate an incredible 1,492,992,000 pixels per second. With all the settings set to “High,” the Dirt3 demo was able to maintain an average of 62-67 fps, peaking at 70 fps.
The downside, however, is that the demo only lasted a few minutes before the PC’s power supply gave up.
Still, this project shows the new DirectX functionality in Windows 8 and what is possible today with 4K monitors. It also reminds us that it is far from accessible and easy to set up, as Microsoft would have spent $ 17,000 – I say ‘would’, because the monitors were borrowed – and the company had to contact AMD directly. to help this impressive demo run.
Oh! Also read Microsoft’s comprehensive and detailed article on the Extreme Windows Blog.
Would you configure this option if you had money?
