The TitanK will bottleneck most current custom builds utilizing the speed of the latest Intel CPU's.
This is not the first nor second time in history nVidia has offered a GPU beyond a CPU capability.
3DFX did go beyond, but bypassed the CPU. Nvidia works with the CPU in its architecture.
If you are going 4K, go for the 1080/TitanK otherwise for 2K and below, these 9xx will max you out depending on your resolution/settings.
I predict less then 1/10th of us that bought into 3D gaming will get into VR. Consoles will need to push VR, not PC. This will be a great day for MS pushing VR compatibility via Xbox20 / Windows20
There are MANY games pushing above 3GB VRAM at 1080p and several around 6GB. To name a few: Arma 3, GTA V, Total War Rome II & Warhammer, Skyrim with mods, Mirror's Edge: Catalyst and ROTTR which can use over 6GB, however they still run fine with less. Games are using more and more VRAM, it'll be foolish to not buy a card with more.
The Pascal Titan X is a card for those that just wants to dump their money on something overly expensive. It's not a card for everyone, which is why they are produced in low quantities and not offered by third parties. However, it "bottlenecking" the latest Intel CPU's isn't true. I don't what you classify as latest, but even a 6700k fairs well with the Pascal Titan X.
The GTX 1080 cannot do 4k 60FPS. By 2k you mean 1080p and not 1440p right? (People classify it differently, there's no right answer) Only the 980Ti can do 1440p60fps, while the rest are suited for 1080p.
