    21:9 addition in GPU Review

    Suggestion for GPU review, especially mid-high end GPU: - Add 3440x1440 resolution since it fills rather big gap between 2560x1440 to 4K. I think 2560x1080 is not really needed since it's halfway between 1920x1080 to 2560x1440. - Drop 1600x900 to offset the time wasted testing 3440x1440.
