How to interpret my graphics card's clock speed to supported resolution? What does a graphics cards clock speed say about it's supported resolution?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have an integrated graphics card whose base clock is 200 mhz and boost is 650 mhz. Planning on connecting this to a monitor. Right now, it powers the 720p display of the laptop. I want to figure out the max resolution using the speed of the graphics card, because no website says the max resolution supported by my graphics card. Is there a way to know what is the max resolution supported by my graphics card using it's clock speeds, so I know what resolution monitor to get. I have Intel HD 500 graphics. Thanks to anyone trying to help me

Thats not how any of that works...

But your gpu should support hdmi 1.4, so 4k at 30hz, or 1080p/1440p at 60hz.

If you know the model of your cpu, just look up the max res using this method:

As Wizard said, the clockspeed of your GPU cannot reasonably tell you anything about what resolutions it supports (let alone resolutions that it can provide adequate performance for). The clock frequency of your GPU is relative only to other GPU's in the same architectural family. Comparing clock speeds of different architectures won't give you a good picture of performance capabilities, and will tell you literally nothing about the specifications it supports.

 

The GPU itself probably supports every standardized resolution - the limiting factor is going to be your laptop's display output.

 

As Cactus has mentioned, in theory it should support 4K at 30 Hz or 1080p/1440p/1600p at 60 Hz. We would need to see your exact laptop model to provide more specific information.

I'm not sure it will support 4k because it right now powers a 720p display. This is an HP Chromebook x360 11 G1 EE. Thanks for your help

there seems to be no hdmi out, what display adapter are you using?

 

the 720p display won't affect this at all.

I'm going to use a USB C to HDMI adapter.

Are you thinking of swapping the internal display? Then i wouldn't go higher than 1080p just to be on the safe side, but if you are thinking of connecting an external display, then here are the max resolutions:

That laptop has USB-C ports - the official USB-C to HDMI port available from HP for your Chromebook is this one:

From the specs:

Supports up to 4K x 2K @ 30 Hz

 

 

The fact that it has a 720p internal display is irrelevant to external support.

 

You WILL NOT be able to game at 4K30, but you can certainly browse facebook.

You will be fine with a 4k external display, if you want to.

You can probably do 2160p 30fps or 1440p 60fps

So you have the answer now, correct?

 

Do you have further questions?

If I buy a 24 inch 1440p display, will I have to zoom in on everything?

You’ll have to look into ChromeOS UI scaling. The UI elements won’t be as massive as on a 720p display, but 24” is a fairly big monitor. You’ll likely be okay unless you have poor eyesight - in which case you may want to increase DPI scaling... however that is done in ChromeOS.
