Project CARS Trailer: 12K Support, Release Date Announced
Slightly Mad Studios sure are mad for deciding to support 12K resolutions in its upcoming racer Project CARS, but it seems to have paid off since it's actually accomplished it.
So we know that Grand Theft Auto V along with a few other games can support 4K resolutions... but what about 12K? Kotaku reports that Project CARS is tired of talking about the idea of supporting 12K resolutions (or more specifically, 11520x2160) and is instead actually releasing a game that can support that resolution. If you don't believe me, you can check out the video above that shows just what this game can do when given three different screens to run on and a pretty souped up rig (featuring four titans, 64G of RAM and three 4K monitors) that, according to the video's recorder, tells consoles to suck it. Just the act of getting three 4K monitors alone would cost just about a fortune. It will be interesting to see what kind of requirements running the game on a 12K resolution will have, besides the ghastly expensive monitors.
Despite the amount of money you'd have to blow to actually support a 12K resolution, it's pretty impressive that a development company has finally taken something that was only an idea and made it a reality. We only have a little while longer to wait for Project CARS to release and allow us the pleasure of seeing the 12K support for ourselves, but remember: it will also be releasing on May 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
