One of the hottest topics in the wake of AMD's Ryzen CPU launch has been the appropriate monitor resolution at which to test CPU performance. AMD claims that the trend among high-end systems is toward higher-resolution displays like 2560x1440 and 4K, making CPU performance less relevant for gaming. The Steam hardware survey says otherwise: that more people play on 1920x1080 displays than all higher-resolution gamers combined. That's before we get into the plethora of refresh rates that are available on high-end gaming monitors today.
With all that in mind, we figure the best course of action is to ask the TR audience. What's the resolution and refresh rate of your primary gaming display?
