    I pay less attention to Low / Medium / High / Ultra and more to aesthetically pleasing.

    Most games on Vega 64 i can get a constant 60. My latest game f1 2020 on the high preset averages out around 60 so a 2080ti would kill it. I think a lot of people look at review charts and get scared. With tweaking you can get a great image at 60fps. You got to remember 4k gives a visual upgrade itself so with tweaking you can get an image that looks just as good as 1440p/1080 turning some settings lower. If i was running 2080ti power i reckon 4k would be pretty easy to manage. The only game i can't manage to get a happy medium is rdr 2 so dropped to 1440p. Most likely getting the new rdna 2 gpu and willing to go £700 max. Really hoping that gets me above 2080ti performance then 4k should be really easy for me.

    That would make their decision to go with 1600 series even more baffling for the Turing generation.

    Might not be mainstream yet but don't forget about VR. I have no intention of buying a 4k monitor as I couldn't justify it, but still need a strong 4k GPU to run VR at high refresh rates.

    That's my point, you can't put most graphical settings to high otherwise you get big dips in FPS, or looking at charts, 50% less FPS than at 1440p.. That's not for me.

    I have been saying this for over 6 years now. Imagine 4K as an inaccessible image quality setting on 1440p, the difference I see is like 2 settings or more above what 1440p can achieve at best. So most games still look better on 4K medium/high then they do on 1440p Uber duper maxed out mode.

    RE The 4K adoption discussion.

    It's clearly not mainstream for the vast majority of content consumption, games and films included.

    8K/16K is an absolutely vast increase in data overhead which I doubt even (especially?) the biggest CDN's will be keen to offer in the next few years.

    16K content for a game you'll be looking at Terabytes to download just as a user.

    Affordable 8K capture for broadcast is not available.

    That's about how much it should really cost. 1070 was $350-$375 and allowing for the stronger £ back then the 2080ti should be replaced by a £300 or less part with better performance. Or something.

    Trillions of dollars have been printed since the 1070 launched. Inflation means prices will be even higher this gen (official inflation numbers are complete nonsense these days, just look at food prices in supermarkets for a real indicator)
