Compare Tahiti and Pitcairn however and you have the same number of Vertex Engines, 60% more CU's, the same number of ROPs and 1.8x the bandwidth. Dependant on where the bottlenecks of an application are Tahiti is always likely to show something more different than the other two ASIC's.
I assume you were answering my question about the difference between the 7970, 7870, 7770, if so thanks :) I don't pay enough attention to the mid range to low end GPU space to have drawn that conclusion easily.
