GCN doesn't scale well? Did you not read the link in my post above yours?
Up to 30% more performance at the same clocks with 20% less FLOPS. Sounds like it's scaling fine, the limitations are in the memory.
Maybe they could have gone with a couple of extra CU's and a 192-bit bus. IMO they should have, but this is still a strong product, the price will just need to come down a bit more once NV releases, same as 79xx.
