Different situation, but mainly yes. many Athlon X2's are the same generation as Phenom. Athlon II is same generation as Phenom II, etc.
You could call it lazy after work math not to mention the magarita and couple of beers . My point that no generation was a 100% or 2x increase still stands. Also I was using the card at 100% as the starting point meaning card A at 100% and card B at 75% card A has a 25% performance lead while also being 50% faster.
If you use the faster card as the starting point, you can only say that card B is x% slower
than card A. No matter how you word it, it's not correct to say it's x% faster unless the slower card was used as the baseline.
And not trying to bring you down completely, but 100% would be 33% faster than 75%, not 50%.
I suggest a cup of coffee and/or a little bit of sleep.
