I think the tests should be run on windows to see if the driver is holding the cards back in Linux.
You will see simular results there. The more complex the computation, nVidia wins, the simpler the computation, AMD wins. Different architectures tuned to different tasks.

I'm a bit surprised by these results to be honest ; some years ago with pre Fermi card it was necessary to design gpgpu kernel around coalesced memory access, and it was said that developper was forced to use float4 type everywhere in their kernel to get good performance from evergreen/cayman radeon cards.
