We can expect NVIDIA to offload some of their PhysX processing which is handled by the CUDA Cores to be offloaded to the Denver CPU on the high-performance Maxwell GPUs to gain more performance and faster GPU physics processing.

AMD Releases Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.8.1

by Scott Michaud |
www.pcper.com
AMD is continuing their trend of steadily releasing graphics drivers, and rapidly fixing important issues as they arise.
Beyond adding support for these new products, it also adds a Crossfire profile for F1 2016 and fixes a few issues, like Firefox and Overwatch crashing under certain circumstances.
Next-gen GPUs won't be here for at least 3-4 more months, and they will be expensive.
I would be happy with recommending the GTX 980 for 4K gaming, but I would recommend pushing the details down a little.
