You mean 8000-series v. 7000 series?
There is one common (and unfortunate) practice now, at least common amongst major graphics card brand, is to rebrand existing products by making it look better. These rebranded products serve as fillers between major development of products to keep people buying their cards.
They usually work hand-in-hand with OEM here -- it's hard to say who is more at fault. There is usually little to no difference between rebranded products and previous products.
Whether I know for sure
that 8000-series is not going to be much better than 7000-series? I don't.
