The E3 tweets were clearly about the APUs, anyone who took those tweets as implications for a new gen GPU were just feeding themselves b.s. "be invincible" was shown as an apu marketing campaign at computex, a good week before those tweets even started.
Perhaps "teasers" would have been a better word that "leaks", but diction isn't the issue here. The following post shows exactly my point.

In the end the tweet made no sense at all.
New APUs or 220w 5.0GHz CPUs have nothing to do with Radeon graphics cards nor NVidia's GeForce line. I guess the surprise was that no Radeon announcement was made, and to that effect AMD succeeded. I'm not the only one who, at the time it was posted, took that twitter comment as something other than "clearly about APUs". Hindsight as they say is 20/20.
BTW, AMD HAS said something about "next gen" earlier this year: no Radeon HD 7970 replacement in 2013
Four months later, post Titan and GTX 770/780, we get that twitter comment and now this - which is still nothing but rumor. If there is an 8970 waiting on the wings, then why can't AMD issue some sort of statement to that effect? It doesn't have to go into extreme detail. Just a simple road map update indicating HD 8000 series cards are scheduled to be launched in Q3 (or whatever) would be sufficient. E3 was a great opportunity to do so. Instead, all we get are rumors while AMD remains silent.
