Marketeers also need to realize...
1. Overhyping is bad. See AMD's Bulldozer.
2. Claiming it will be greater than the predecessor, when in reality it's not what the fans expect (in a bad way). See Simcity Societies (very unpopular with SC4 hardcore fans).
3. Hyping certain features of a product. No, that 4 GB of VRAM is not going to improve a Radeon 7750's performance, nor is the GPU computing feature going to be used frequently in games. And good luck running a DX11 game at excellent graphics, with a multi-monitor setup. Engineers should also be part of the blame, unless if they were ordered to do it.
3b. Pairing an i7 processor with an Geforce 610m GPU. No, just no.
