Graphics cards is Don's area of expertise.

I remember reading his articles on Tom's Hardware, he used to work there.

Here is Tom's HD 7970 preview, done by him: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7970-benchmark-tahiti-gcn,3104.html

It's pretty much a rule at this point that any product over-hyped by AMD is going to be trash. BD, Fiji etc were failures while products like Zen and Tahiti were big winners. A product that stands on its own doesn't need that, nor does it even benefit from it when there's already tons of more convincing organic hype coming from users and enthusiasts.

Things are really bad when they start bragging excessively about effectively pointless novel technologies like "CMT" and HBM (which, while not at all a pointless development, didn't get Fiji the performance crown and limited it to 4GB). We haven't seen that yet with Vega, so here's to hoping. Pascal has existed with no competition at the higher end for so long and Volta is coming soon; AMD really needs a winner here.

HBM was far from pointless though. Obviously there are always going to be implementation challenges with any cutting-edge technological development but at least AMD continues to innovate. HBM will become very relevant over the coming years and we have AMD (in part) to thank for that.

And yes, it's as official as it gets. Here it is from the link for future reference:
