Much of the UI and several other aspects of the game are heavily dependent on frame rate.
The last point probably has more to do with the extra VRAM you have now, as well as faster GPU terrain generation.
Bottom line, if you're thinking about upgrading and you play the elite enough... it's worth it! It's also worth noting I'm a 1080p'er (with the old card and the new).... the pc is 8gb memory and an intel i5 that's 2 years old... hope this is useful to someone on the upgrading fence...
The game is probably including the render queue (which is three frames deep, by default) in the count.
