I'm glad you did finally mention the positive options however, supply is better so they want to entice the OEMs to order more. No surprise you didn't mention it in the first post though.
I didn't mention it because it's not likely to be the case. Have we ever had over supply on the transition to a new die size with a big chip? Have we not heard rumors of issues with the 28nm process and seen delays of all products on it? Is there no rumor the 7970 has disabled SPs , like the 480, implying low yields of full parts?

If there's oversupply, it's more likely due to low demand based on high price.
