no it isn't, it's a fact .ex\ a 290 needs more power and produce more heat to perform the same as a 970

You are comparing accross generations.

It is not totally invalid though, due to 28nm process for both, but still.

doesn't meter the die size , the base of eficiency it's the same and even comparing 7xx series against r9 2xx , for the same performance  , the nvidia gpu it's more eficient

1. A GTX 780 TDP is about 250W. R9 290X is about 300W. R9 290X beats GTX 780 on properly optimized games.

2. You're defending NVIDIA as if their GPU's are always more efficient than AMD's and ATI's. Fermi cards are quite known to be power-hungry. Kepler cards are more efficient, but AMD's GCN cards are almost on-par in terms of power consumption.

 

Also, don't forget the monstrosity of GeForce FX 5800 Ultra.

 

TL;DR, NVIDIA cards may be more efficient, but not much, not much at all. It's very, very close.

 

I admit, Maxwell cards are great in terms of price-performance and power-performance. But GCN 2.0 cards are coming, and I'm sure it'll be far more efficient than current GCN cards.

    Oh yes, we'll keep on trying.
