Wow, maybe it's because I was reading what the image you posted was saying and not what you wrote. No need to get defensive about it. If DX11 gen 1 is VLIW4 then it would be a good guess that gen 2 is VLIW5. You don't need to say it for it to make sense... Get off your high horse and calm down. You've obviously getting way more worked up about this than anyone should. This thread will still be here after you take a couple deep breaths.
I also take "road maps" with a grain of salt. We really won't know until there are verified engineering samples of the CPU.
All in all, it might be GCN then again it might not. We don't know.
Let's wait and see!
I can think of a number of things to do between now and then.
