I see one benefit to this, games will have a chance to be properly optimised with a familiar GPU Architecture, the HD 7000 series.
I am still sticking to my guns, and waiting for HD 8900 Series. I always skip a generation and the HD 7900 was that skip. Unless of course the cards go down in price a lot.
