The only one that comes close to the strip is the Porterhouse due to the inclusion of the tenderloin in that specific cut.
People that shop at the meat counter at Costco think Ribeyes are the shit because they are featured. It's an easier cut to make by the butcher, especially in fast/mass production and has consistency in terms of the marbling regardless of the type of steer it came from.
However, a properly cut Strip is most definitely superior to a ribeye cut, especially on a better grade of beef.
