Yes, but then lets also compare computational power and other sectors which involve a graphic card or two or four, not just games... I believe that if AMD made a pure gaming card that would compute like a turd (like nv did now) this thing would cost less and still smack nv around. Otherwise you'll have mandarins vs apples.
As others pointed out, this is only a reviewer's card to put the 7970 bar a tad higher than it is on the usual card, which you can still get cheaper and do more with it. Complaints aside, AMD managed to raise to the big green guy's level and that's not a small feat considering how much money nv throws at this game.
