NVIDIA will always be better at tessellation on DX9, DX11 or DX12. Tessellation take huge perf. on rasterizer efficiency - with better tessellation and 50% more ROPs NVIDIA has huge advantages.
You will have API overhead, but to a lower extant. You can see in the AoS benchmark (which is not a rule ofcourse)

Agreed about the second point. Even in DX11 we can see games that are considered "heavy" without a CPU limitation. Even BF4 and Crysis 3, at least on 1080p (link
