Dont get me wrong, I am an AMD fan, but I highly doubt that this new architecture is going to be as fast as some people are hoping!
This would be the expected speeds...Any major change in GPUs (Especially process size) usually matches the last gen dual GPU cards.

Multiple say, GTX 480s/580s or the like. Your 460s would see an improvement.
But there is a bit of an upgrade there, it'll have a higher minimum FPS, less driver issues (For when there actually are any) and use a lot less power.
I'm definitely considering the 7970.
