Not all GhzD are equal.
Historically, TF was done on cpus, as was LL, and at that time there was no GIMPS PRP. The GhzD unit of measure was set as one core of a theoretical 1Ghz Core 2 processor.
Gpus have much faster single precision or integer speed (relevant to TF) than DP (relevant to P-1, LL, and PRP); in some cases as much as 8x, 12x, 16x, or more (although some rare models are 2x or 3x). In cpus the ratios I've seen ranged from 0.7 to 1.4.
On a gpu, a TF GhzD occurs much more quickly than a P-1 or PRP or LL GhzD.
Compare GhzD/day figures for TF and for LL / PRP for the same gpu model.
