The 70-400 weights 1490 lbs without tripod mount while the Tamron 150-600 weights 1950 lbs with the tripod mount. The actual difference minus the tripod mount is likely closer to 1/2 lb.

As a new 70-400G owner, I can confirm it weighs at least 1,490 pounds, plus another 50 pounds or so for the hood. Worth it though!
