Its extremely unfair while reviewing a card which people will look to use in multi monitor configurations to leave out the multi monitor performance.
As for weights here are some suggestions. for cards which are in the USD 350 - USD 500 price point the 1280 x 800 chart does not need to be a part of the review and the performance average. For weight in this class I can give only what I feel is right given you are spending a lot of money.
1600p - 0.3, 5760 x 1080 - 0.3, 1080p / 1200p - 0.2, 1680 x 1050 - 0.2 .
For cards in USD 200 - USD 350 the 5760 x 1080 can be removed and weights can be as follows
1080p / 1200p - 0.4, 1680 x 1050 -0.3, 1600p - 0.2, 1280 x 800 - 0.1
For cards in USD 100 - USD 200 , 1600p can be removed and weights can be as follows
1080p / 1200p - 0.4, 1680 x 1050 - 0.3, 1280 x 800 - 0.3
using those methods for all cards tested, would you say our performance summary, performance per dollar and performance per watt will still be valid, if all the cards in there are subject to different weight factors?
How to solve the 0.0 score issue on 5760x1080?
nvidia's architecture is weak at higher resolutions, so going from $350 to $349 (for example) will increase each nvidia's card "performance summary", just by making the card cheaper, not faster in real life. it will also affect "performance per dollar" more than $1 alone. thoughts on this?
