shader count has nothing to do with performance gained/oc% ratio. So im not so sure the thread is stupid or you just don't know whats what yourself.

Does kepler have stronger shaders graphically compared to GCN? sure does, but the ratio above moves linear to core count. So a 780 still sits at a 2/3 ratio just like the titan and 770.

Last edit I swear:

If we had 1 gcn core and 1 kepler core, the one kepler core would be faster at the same exact clock speed, probably by about 15-20%. We know this because it takes less shaders on kepler then gcn to hit the same performance, but does so at ~5-10% clock increase. Now, if i were to overclock these individual shaders, I would see a ~2/3 ratio for kepler and ~3/4 for GCN. Doesn't matter i there are 10 kepler cores and 1 GCN core, the ratios do not change as the ratio is completely independent of shader count. The ratio is dependent on the performance per clock achieved from that architecture. So 10fps stock on 1 kepler shader with a 30% overclock will net me 12fps. if we take GCN at a 15% disadvantage per shader, so 8.5 fps, a 30% oc nets us ~10.41 fps. So, as you see, the GCN shader is weaker, but gains more out of the overclock regardless of how many shaders there are.
