I am trying to understand how does rendering work on a low level.

In a 2d game if the 4 players are sharing the same view I think the GPU has to render the background once then the 2 players but what if it's 3d 3rd person with 2 seprate monitors will the GPU render everything 2 times ( once for each player ) or will it render the world once and make minor calculations to to show each player's perspective?

Is there way for me to determine the outcome?

You mean split-screen?
As far as i know i has to render the scene 2 times, but with half the pixel-amount, so this should cancel out :)

You should still expect splitscreen mode to be more demanding than singleplayer overall.
