Thoughts on rigs we use and report frame rates

Op-Ed
I’ve noticed many people are giving their rig’s specs and reporting frame rate and issues related.
One thing that many are not saying is the type and resolution of their monitor. There is a huge difference in the power drawn from a graphics cards in a 4 k monitor and a basic 1920 x 1080 display. That one variable can be a real issue in FPS drop.
Something to think about when comparing one rig to another and thinking about crash errors and such. It is not so easy to say your hardware is great or that one isn’t pushing too far anymore.
