On the whole, us end-users are pretty much stuck with either nVidia or AMD and both camps now offer a plethora of the same stuff, that competes with even their own stuff, that one is utterly bewildered by it all.
There's no need for any company to produce products that aren't significantly different enough to warrant being labelled a "new" model with xx features.
With only 2 major players, market saturation is already a big problem and these sorts of tactics won't help at all.
But what are the choices though?
This is what I'm getting at.
Both camps are offering a plethora of choices of THE SAME thing!
Look at them objectively..
I can't see how it's bad for the consumer to have a "saturated" GPU market. Besides, if HD 6670 displaces the GPUs currently holding its target price points to give higher performance per Dollar, I can't see how it is "saturation" in the first place. If anything your analysis is alarmist.
