    Its a waaaaay off for gaming. The brute force just isn't there, even with crazy set ups.

    I may have read (without the usual, omg where are your ketchups?!? and so on) that the human eye can only see in ~16k

    But @Big G "good times" for gaming incoming over the next 10 years or so, so long as we don't all catch Brexit and die... or pretend to game on consoles.

    Besides which if its not 16k @60fps it can get in the sea.

    Shame the relative power in GPU/CPU isn't on par with those crazy monitors. Unless there's a bottleneck with the DirectX interface in relation to how games are programmed and how the graphic-cards work. A large leap would be nice, instead of the standard 20-25% shift with prices that in my opinion really isn't warranted.

    The card I bought was mahoosive! Was getting worried at first that I wouldn't be able to fit it in the case.

    Glad I have the Corsair Air 540 case!

    So £700-800?

    That isn't bad for the alleged performance gains.
    The 1080 was an absolutely dreadful card for perf/£ , with my 1070 amp extreme getting equivalent performance.

    If the average gain is around 35-40%, then it will put a lot of titles that were close to 4k60 over the finish line, and price being 60-65% higher than a 1070 for 45-50% perf gains isn't too bad for the flagship.

    Let's hope vega magically is better for half the money? :p

    Considering upgrading but tbh I'm not sure I even need to for another 2-3 year at least.

    Currently running

    4690k @ 4.0ghz
    16gig DDR3
    GTX 1070

    nothing really chugs, some CPU intensive games chug sort of... but nothing ground breaking, might just wait until the next round of releases after Coffeelake and see how it goes.
