Hello,

I plan to buy the Samsung C49RG90, and would like to know if Shadow support the native resolution 5120x1440@60hz ?

Thanks.

I am running Shadow with a Odyessy G9 (5120 x 1440) and can comfirm it does work, although it wants the default res to be 3840 x 1080@120Hz).

 

You enable 5120 x 1440@60Hz by enabling H.265 in the Shadow menu.

 

I do get some pulsing in the image though.

I get the same “pulsing” on higher resolutions as well. Have you found the cause/resolution?

These estimated calculations might help:

Hey @Chaos_Supreme  @villo1988,

try limiting the FPS to 60 in your shadow launcher-settings and in the game you are playing. Make sure it is set to the correct solution and Hz (60) in your nvidia control panel on shadow.

Thanks @Phobos for the suggestion, although it didn’t make a difference. I think the problem is my iGPU which isn’t powerful enough to decode 4K @ 60Hz. 
 

Hey @Gelgoog - this is a very useful list - how do define “supported hardware”? Does that mean that Intel ≥6000 is capable of decoding 4K @ 60Hz?
