This is a very good gaming card, better than the 7970 in that respect, but all signs are pointing towards the gains in gaming being at the expense of compute. If you are going to spout a claim like that then at least back it with proof.... else people are going to take you for a green fanboy.
Nvidia says it, as do reviewers:

SKYMTL (hardware canucks reviewer):
We don't really know since the final unified drivers with optimized GPGPU code aren't due out until sometime in the next two months. Hence why there are several bugs (Design Garage, Folding, etc. don't work right now). This launch is geared solely towards gaming at this point.
Plus, the GK104 won't be the basis of their HPC cards anyways.
Also remember that this is a GK104 so its compute performance should be compared against the GF114. The compute powerhouse will be the card that replaces GF100 / GF110 on the desktop side and the higher end Tesla models on the other.
