I'll try to ask my question in a generic way (without mentioning specific models and brands):
Assume the maximum resolution a graphics card supports is X*Y (e.g. less than 4K). When I try to play a video with a higher resolution (e.g. a 4K video), it's barely running (it's mostly hanging).
Does this mean that the graphics card did not participate in playing the video (because it's in a higher resolution than it supports), or that nevertheless it tried to assist in playing the video but managed poorly (because it's in a higher resolution than it supports)?
(Or maybe it's something completely else and I'm missing how graphic cards work or what the 'maximum resolution supported' means.)
Thanks in advance.
