Yes, they would as they did with the GT8800 back then for example. The reason for that trend is that they would have head room to overclock it making it the new standard clock should AMD be able to match or beat their part. They are being very conservative by not providing this information. Specially when they are possibly 2 quarters behind before they are available for purchase. IMO, I call this a red flag. But perhaps before the day is over with we actually get performance numbers.
