Not sure how high can AMD shoot but since RX 480 is nearly same as GTX 1060, I guess RX 490X will be between GTX 1070 and 1080? Can't say anything yet tbh, just my predictions :)

AMD had to recreate their RX 400 series GPUs from the ground up (not entirely i believe). They are focused on power consumption. I hope they deliver what they promise with the performance increase.

power consumption may be equal in the highest end if not slightly lower than what it is replacing, but with so much more performance

I would prefer higher performance at similar power consumption.
But its likely going to be a balance of two :P

AMD has a huge focus on energy efficiency. This is good, they know what they're doing. Along with performance improvements, i believe that AMD will make a great comeback along with the ZEN CPUs and APUs.

I am waiting for APU.
If they can get a apu that performs similar to GTX 950-960 for price close to 7850k or a bit higher, I would likely get one :P

It kind of is.
But 2.5 Times of 7850k would be close to GTX 950-960 range :P

http://wccftech.com/amd-bristol-ridge-16-cu-apu/
This is upcoming 28 nm APU performing close to HD 7850 or current gen consoles :P
Seems like Zen based APU close to 950 is possible.

This is very interesting. I'm very impressed with AMD's brand new APUs. They are really pushing the APUs to the limit which is GREAT. I'm glad it's possible to get performance close to a GTX 950
