It's not just performance that matters...
We're on the same page here, NVIDIA is just really far ahead this gen, I mean, they have 2 faster cards than AMD's fastest Single GPU by at least 20% - 35% on the same 28nm process. This lead is much larger than Fermi vs Cayman.
7970 vs 580 comparison matters, because it took AMD a new node, and new architecture to dethrone NVIDIA's previous flagship on 40nm. It's going to take VI for AMD to dethrone Titan, and that's not any time soon unfortunately.
