Your argument against him would be valid if we knew NOTHING about these cards, but the fact is we do, so we can make assumptions on the performance.
Well, my point is that right now we are very unsure how many shaders are even on the GPU. We are also very unsure what the effect of splitting the clock on the core and shaders will have on the R770. Finally, we are very unsure what the total effect will be from increasing the texture units on the chip.
Those are three big uncertainties that make it very difficult to estimate just how it'll work. Either way though, adding validity to something on the basis of conjecture and group allegiance is crap and we should all strive to do better. I already see enough of that around me everyday, I'd like OCN to rise above it.
