I do not, nor will I ever understand why so many people in so many threads seem to take personal offense at Nvidia’s graphic chip classification.

If you point out a chip falls squarely in the middle of their ranking of all chips in a family, people get offended. Sigh....

As Vya Domus famously said "The fact that people refuse to believe that GP104 is anything but mid range goes to show how much Nvidia has been able to distort expectations in consumers."

Of course the irony of that "distortion" is it's performance leaves the competiton trailing and since Maxwell they have be able to introduce a GX102 tier between 04 and 00.

A matter of preference (which is why I really don't want to open this discussion again). Some people look at performance, others look at labels/numbers first.

But seems kinda strange that you only want to pay for a mid-end card, yet expect it to run a very high res. Even 1080 Ti struggles with 2160p at 60 fps in many demanding games..

If you can only afford mid-end then maybe you should settle with 1440p?
The 1080Ti does not struggle with 60fps on 4K. That card was engineered for 4K with the amount of memory they put on it. I have a 42" 4K monitor and a 1080Ti and very seldom do I go below 60 fps on my games with all the eye candy turned on. For example, on Battlefield 1 with ultra settings my average fps is 85.

People have been saying for quite some time how 4K is not achievable and it is. I even had good rates with BF1 on my 780 Ti and 4K, just not on Ultra.
