I would definitely like to echo this opinion.
I always thought PC gaming was all about no-holds-barred performance. Pinnacle of performance where possible. Compromise is the land of consoles, not PC.
Yet the review seems to be trying to satisfy itself at 60fps. While I get that buying say a Vega64 or 1080 is for 1440p gaming, what about gamers who don't want 1440p but wants 1080p at 144Hz refresh rate or better? Or 1080Ti at 1440p to see if it can attain more than 100fps for the 100Hz monitors? When I look at the competitive gaming scene, I see gamers still chasing the highest fps they can.
I get that not every gamer will be chasing the highest fps they can, and with Freesync/G-Sync, the need reduces drastically. But aren't we basically saying we are settling on a performance compromise there? It's like saying doing 50 burpees and quitting, instead of pushing 100 if you can.
It all comes down to money. And right now, prices suck. I COULD afford to go all out, but do I want to? Not really.
How fast can you afford to go? Every person is going to give you a different answer.
