If they made a 27" 5k display with a GTX 1080 (not M)Built in, I bet they would sell a far number for $1000 USD, but Apple actually delivering a high value product like that doesn't seem very likely

If they do make these I'd guess they'd go with a new Polaris based card from AMD that would be much less $$$.

If they put a 1080 in a 5K monitor they would put a $1499 price tag on it and no one would buy it. It would probably get
too hot inside the monitor and draw too much power. A 1070 would be more feasible but I'd still bet on an AMD chip.
