I am seeing the following on my system (just learning, nothing professional)..

Speed.GPU.#1...: 43787 H/s
Speed.GPU.#2...: 43581 H/s
Speed.GPU.#*...: 87368 H/s

I see posts like;

Speed.GPU.#1...: 4348.1 kH/s
Speed.GPU.#2...: 4356.3 kH/s
Speed.GPU.#*...: 8704.4 kH/s

noob question, what does the H/s and kH/s stand for? I am assuming kH/s is better than H/s?
just standard tech abbreviations. kilo, mega, giga 1 gH/s = 1000 mH/s = 1000*1000 kH/s = 1000*1000*1000 H/s
So is it worth the few hundred $$ upgrade from a pair of R9 270x's to a single GTX 970 for the speed boost?
I would not expect a big speed boost, if there is one at all.
You'll probably have lower power consumption but I guess the upgrade is not really worth it.
