These resolutions were used:
Quote from the MacRumors news article on that:
This makes the Retina MacBook Pro the first Mac -- other than a tower-based workstation like the Mac Pro -- to natively power four displays simultaneously.
No, the Macbook Pro Retina can support:
Dual display and video mirroring: Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on up to two external displays, at millions of colors
update: It has been dully noted that using the included HDMI connector one can run a third display using a max resolution of 1920 x 1200. It is important, however, to note that one cannot daisy chain more than two thunderbolt displays (at least according to Apple so far).
