I'd like to start with GPU benchmarking The major issue I see right now with GPU testing in games, is that all benchmarks are run on ULTRA settings. Without a doubt it shows us how well GPU performs for specific game, without any compromises. It's rather helpful for 1080p, cause modern mid-high tier GPUs handles it pretty nicely and still deliver nice stable FPS (or at least I hope so). However as we reach 1440p and 4K I really want to see how games performs on HIGH settings instead. This is the visual grading I have in my mind: Code: Very Low < Low < Medium < HIGH < VERY HIGH <= ULTRA As a budget-minded consumer, I find higher tier GPUs like GTX1070 or Vega54 the most attractive. My goal is not to see all eye candies, but having stable and smooth gameplay. So having an idea how well game performs without murdering a GPU would be really helpful for me. I am pretty sure some games might lose 50fps by simply switch from Very HIGH to ULTRA. So while GPUs like GTX1070 or Vega54 were straggling to maintain 60fps on 1440p ULTRA, they might deliver stable 120fps on HIGH settings. This also related to how 4k scares consumers with low FPS, which caused by benchmarks being run on ULTRA settings. Games on 4K were never meant to be played on ULTRA settings imho. Run 4K on HIGH settings and I am pretty sure we will see a totally different FPS. ------ With above said, I also want to see how bad lag spikes were during benchmarking. Having 0.1% low would be really helpful to notice it. For example Intel i5 6600k might have higher average FPS than Ryzen 2700x. However if we look in CPU heavy game like BF1, 6600k might have issues with processing heavy fights resulting in fps being dropped to 40fps at some times, while 2700x maintained 90fps as minimum. 0.1% low would also be helpful for GPU, since they also might experience throttle and drop fps, but still have higher average FPS. This is something that crossed my mind and I just wanted to share. Right now we only have consumers sharing their fps on different game settings and don't have reliable source on it. What's your thoughts and how benchmarking could be improved?
