Quite honestly, I think this is the first time in a long time that good competition has started to brew, and it's this kind of competition that pushes technology forward. AMD really needs this right now, and AMD is needed to keep Nvidia in check.
I was being serious about the fact that I think AMD fans will definitely be really vocal about their perceived injustice if games/benchmarks don't show the improvements they think these new APIs should bring.
Unfortunately, the architectures are currently very different and as such, developers will naturally have to make choices to benefit their market. This is normal, and AMD has a good start with all consoles having their hardware. As we see Nvidia adopt a similar architecture, then we can get back to focusing on which architecture is better instead of the shady area of blaming developers.
