That chart seems to be someone's wet dream and nothing else....
It would seem more in line with past launches that the GK104 be approximately equal to the 7970. Earlier in this thread I believe I said that if NV releases a second o r third tier part that equals or comes close to the 7970 first it would be good strategy and keep NV in half the high end market.

Then again, every now and again a breakout part happens. (E.G. 9700Pro, 8800GTX) So who knows till we see it?
