Well, no, you did assume. You said:

If you're using 1920x1080 and he's using 2560x1440 or 4K, then your experience with the same graphics card is kind of meaningless…

Besides, it's not so easy just lowering resolution. When you run any LCD monitor at a non-native resolution (like running a 4K at 1920x1080), things generally look terrible, especially text (fonts). It has to be avoided at all costs. Although NVIDIA did add an "integer scaling" option to their drivers finally last August that lets you run 1920x1080 games on 4K with simple pixel-quadrupling, and AMD did the same last December, so running a 1080 game on a 4K monitor isn't necessarily the nightmare it used to be - assuming you configure things right. Doesn't really help people with 2560x1440 monitors though.
