I wouldn't be shocked per se.
Going from 6970 to 7970 was a huge jump. Max OC vs. max OC, I'm doubling my performance now with the 7970. And while it was expensive, it wasn't anywhere close to twice the price of the previous flagship card like Titan will be.
I don't care at all if they don't have the fastest single GPU, AMD is pretty comfortable winning in price/performance like they seem to do every generation.
