Most likely it's 720p(it was discussed many times before)-

720p extreme quality is also limitation of Google Cast 14.123.1.4 for Chrome

720p extreme quality setting = Video bitrate 4000-5000 + Audio bitrate 128
720p high quality setting = Video bitrate 2000-2500 + Audio bitrate 128
480p standard quality setting = Video bitrate 750-1500 + Audio bitrate 128

Casting a tab from Chrome is limited to 720p but some casting apps can do 1080p.

Correct.

Tab casting is limited because of the fact that it's doing real-time compression of the screen. For the gamers, it's like running FRAPS except you're streaming rather than saving to disk.

Is your TV set to tell you your resolution? I.e. My Samsung will say 1920x1080 or 1280x720. Don't do much tab casting so I gotta say I've been pretty pleased that the Chromecast seems to always be pumping out 1080p and my receiver on Netflix stuff always lights up the Dolby Digital+ icon.

Netflix has example movies that show the current resolution and bitrate. My CC certainly streams 1080p from Netflix @ 5800 kbps
