Makes Nvidia guess how fast the HD7970 might end up being, as the higher clocks might allow another 15~20% improvement, now add another 10~20% improvement from driver maturity 6 months from now, and the current 25% gap relative to the GTX580...


Suddenly, Nvidia needs to make kepler 50% faster than the GTX580 in gaming just to match it, never mind beating the HD7970 by the usual 20~30% to make it worth people having waited for it in the first place.
