Several days ago AMD announced several new professional GPUs, and one of them (Radeon Pro SSG) managed to render a 96 fps 8K video. Apart from displaying the video, AMD Radeon Pro had to supply sixteen 4K monitors at the SIGGRAPH 2016 event. We are not sure which particular model was used in this system but it’s very likely that this was Radeon Pro SSG because of its high performance.
Considering the number of displays and their resolution, the sum total of pixels it had to render is 132 million or 16K resolution. For this purpose, they used 55-inch LG 4K OLED monitors, displaying different images. You may be wondering why they did not play a video or some demo? Well, the picture below shows a comparison between the still huge for most users 4K resolution and the 16K presented at the event. Here is another representation of different resolutions according to the number of pixels in an image:
– 1080p – 1920 x 1080 (2MP)
– 4K – 3840 x 2160 (8.2MP)
– 8K – 7680 x 4320 (33MP)
– 16K – 15,360 x 8640 (132MP)
