Gaming power consumption is roughly similar to the reference design, which is impressive because Palit's card comes with much higher clock speeds on both GPU and memory.

compute performance and power is reffering too
YES YES YES YES YES
they are maybe referring to price/performance.
NO NO NO NO NO.......................
This one doesn't make much sense.
The rating is based on the GPUBoss scores alone, which are in the black box at the top. They rate on really specific things, that Passmark, and 3DMark don't seem to reward. Seems odd, but the first box at the top for the Gaming - makes me wonder if the real-world performance is better on the 7870. I have an R7870 Twin Frozr edition now, and it kicks butt, but I want a Nvidia card so I can play around with Gsync soon.
Sure looks that way...
@Zeppast i think its glitched
Still scratching my head on this one, how does an HD 7870 beat a GTX 760? when 99% of the benchmarks show the 760 ahead.
