I think it's a pretty fair assumption. Don't try and pretend "average people" don't know how to use the internet in 2013.
Edit: Google "Playstation 4" or "XBOX One". There are several results on the first page that atleast mention the basic specs of the Consoles.
First thing that stands out right there is IGN. It's widely popular to us. But for most of the gamers....IGN means nothing. Most people don't visit gaming websites. They just play games and know about it when a friend mentions it or they see a commercial for it. If they were all like us, IGN would easily be seeing 100 million views a day.
People think that this is somehow a fanboy related way to bash AMD? hahaha so paranoid. Xbox 360 had ATI. Most people don't care. PS3 had Nvidia, most people don't care. The only real piece of hardware that was every publicly shoved down our throats was "the CELL"
Think of it this way. EVERYBODY drives cars, but we're not flocking to "welovecars.com" every night...Just as everybody that loves gaming isn't flocking to "ilovegaming.com"
So this idea that we suddenly don't care about the hardware just because it's AMD is ridiculous. It's just AMD. It's just mainstream hardware. It's Sony's console. It's Microsoft's console. It's Nintendo's console. The awareness of the hardware isn't the focus. The games are. That's it.
