    There is some truth to what both of you are saying. It is possible to game at 4K with modern hardware without the GPU being the bottleneck, though, that is pretty uncommon.
    I generally agree that if high frame rates are what you seek, 4K should be a low priority (as of today) and that 1440p is a good middle-ground of decent resolution and decent performance

    Just curious but do you have AA on? Because I don't see how you, with a pair of 1080Tis, could struggle to get 60FPS on those games. To my understanding, AA becomes exponentially more GPU intensive as resolution goes up, so I could see how it could be very punishing at 4K. For that very reason, whenever I switch to 4K, I have no intention on using AA at all (maybe SMAA). To me personally, the performance loss and extra heat generated just isn't worth the visual difference, especially at such a high resolution.

    It was implied that this was referring to Skylake X when it was released, since the context is about how the CPUs were marketed when they were first being sold.

    Probably because he's using one of the 1080Ti's for gaming. He mentioned it a few posts up. :)
