I already covered how this was wrong in my first post, but you apparently refuse to understand. I can only conclude that you are now being intentionally dishonest and simply trolling.

But just in case it REALLY didn't sink in the first time, here it is again

Looking at the numbers from your first graph 13.33 / 9.75 = 1.37 or a 37% advantage for the 7970 indicating that bandwidth is the limiting factor and exactly what one would expect.
Look kid, if you have such a great such a great understanding of these matters, you should be employed in the industry or patenting your ideas and selling the IP. By all means, apply to Nvidia for a job or email their engineers with your improvements to their designs. I'm sure they would love to hear from you personally. But don't waste your time posting vague nonsensical statements on a fansite without any actual evidence to back up your claims; that just makes you look like an ignorant troll. Anyway, I'm done here.
