What most of these challenged reviewers don't get is that very few of us play games at 4k. First off a decent 4k monitor cost more than the computer, 2nd, FPS is far more important than resolution in most games and 3rdly, how many of us are going to spend $550+ on a graphics card, when less expensive ones do the trick?
4k is this weird beast which has become the go-to metric in spite of the fact that very very few people use it and, as Steve from GamersNexus said, the posts are continuously being moved with each generation. They still include trickle down benchmarks for 1440p and 1080p so that's always great but the big selling point in the case of the 3070 is that it's able to do what the 2080 Ti could (roughly) do for $700 less across the board so they really want to put emphasis on the cost to performance.
