720p was the console standard this gen and every gpu out since 2008 has been overkill for that.
1080p is going to be the alleged console standard this year (with a lot of 720p30fps thrown in by lazy publishers who don't want to spend money on diminishing returns) so this card seems like it will start the push straight on up to the 4k standard in 2-3 years for Pc Gaming.
I hope its not the usual stutter fest from AMD.
But more importantly, hopefully this make nVidia pick up the slack and build better cards. The 700 series was very disappointing. Maybe the 800 series will be better.
