If you want to display it on a TV (so 50 or 60 Hz, interlaced), 1400x486 @ 60 Hz and 1383x576 @ 50 Hz.
What is the Highest resolution that the Jaguar can reach?
TOM is a custom chip designed by Atari, not an off-the-shelf IC. The model numbers are 6SC880HF / TC26SC880HS / SC414200 (quoted from this page on Best Electronic's website).
I know the chip is named TOM, but what model number is the chip?

If you don't care about the refresh rate, then 1440x4096 interlaced... @ 9 Hz

one of our jagware member managed to get around 1300x574 at 50hz
but I don't know if it's the maximum

I would suppose that you what need to add at those resolutions is an actual RGB monitor, simply because NTSC doesn't have enough chroma resolution for more than about 480 across (maybe 512 with overscan) even if you use S-video.

Indeed. If you want to display more than 720 pixels horizontally, you have to setup the OP to run twice per line, by using different values for HDB1 and HDB2. I made a small demo of this a while ago :
Since you can set the pixel width as low as one clock, though, you can get the existing hardware to clock video out at much higher resolutions. You have to pull some tricks with the line buffer to get a sensible picture, though, at least in my experimentation.
