Of course your lies and errors miss the point that the 480 is the same generation part as the 5870, not the 580 which was a refresh part competing with 6970. Nvidia had the faster part both generations. They will this time as well, people should really think twice about buying a short term leader like the 7970. I'd be pretty pissed off if I spent big bucks on a 7970 and Nvidia flattens it in a couple months...
LOL...GTX480 launched in may in any sort of quantities, so it was more like 8 months behind, so the last thing you should use is the phantom edition argument, period.
And as far as Kepler is concerned, read this and if it's true, it might be slightly longer than a "couple of months"...Cross your fingers that it isn't.
The official charts from their own conventions tells it all.... Fermi in 2009 and Kepler in 2011...Can you smell the B.S. yet?
