Exclamation GeForce GTX 1060 is now the most popular card on Steam

Steam hardware survey shows most gamers lean towards Nvidia.

If the software you use to play the movie supports hardware acceleration then yes. Or if you use a player like MPC-HC or JRiver which support the madVR renderer then there are different upscaling algorithms you can use that can use a lot of GPU power. For instance playing back 4k files using the NGU chroma upscaling algorithm my GTX 1070 is pushed pretty hard (and that's with it on the high quality preset, very high causes frame drops).
