Is there any general way to know what is the maximum supported resolution by any GPU? For example my GPU is AMD radeon HD 8600/8700M max resolution, and I googled about that information, but I could not find anything helpful. How can I get these information?


The first result on Google for AMD radeon HD 8600/8700M is this page:


It includes a link to a PDF document for full specifications for the entire 8000 series GPU.

In said PDF, it gives you the following information:

  • DisplayPort 1.2
    Max resolution: 4096x2160 per display HBR2 support Multi-Stream Transport 21.6 Gbps bandwidth High bit-rate audio Quad FullHD/4k video support
  • HDMI® (With 4K, 3D, x.v.Color™ and Deep Color)
    Max resolution: 4096x2160 1080p60 Stereoscopic 3D Quad FullHD/4k video support
  • Dual-link DVI with HDCP
    Max resolution: 2560x1600
  • VGA
    Max resolution: 2048x1536
  • But this seems to be a different version right? or am I missunderstanding something? – Mohammed Noureldin Nov 17 '17 at 2:52
  • How do you figure? You told us which model of GPU and the linked information is applicable to that model. Do you have a 8600M or 8700M update your question. We can only go off what you tell us. Inaccurate information is unhelpful. – Ramhound Nov 17 '17 at 2:52
  • The model I have written in the question is exactly what is written in my device manager. – Mohammed Noureldin Nov 17 '17 at 2:54
  • Device manager isn’t displaying the exact model you have. Use more accurate methods to determine precisely which GPU you have. Research those methods before you ask “how”. – Ramhound Nov 17 '17 at 2:56
  • This answer is accurate and answers your question. – Ramhound Nov 17 '17 at 2:58
