Once all eye candy is applied with 8x AA 16 AF then the HD 6970 really shines and does come closer to the GTX 580. Tessellation performance has been vastly improved and in the event Developers get real and start using Ray Tracing, the HD 5970 5870 6970 6950 all surpass the GTX 580.
The GTX 580 goes back and forth with the HD 5970 untill the HD 6990 is released but at $350 the HD 6970 is a good deal but so is the GTX 570. Most people will see this a an Nvidia win by not understanding AMD will use the HD 6990 to compete with the GTX 580 at the over $500 a card position. Can't wait to find some CF vs Sli benchmarks.
