Only a few months ago, the GP104 was the top card of the bunch.
On release date, if you remove the gtx 1080 ti, the 1080 and 1070 were top end, 1060 and 1050 were mid range, and previous cards were low range.
Now the 1080 TI and titan Xp have just taken over the super lucrative top end were the special cards and dual core used to be.
Relative performance, the 1060 and 1050 are making the mid range the same as the as the 570 and 560 are making the mid range, with the 550 and 540 making the low range.
