Fair enough, but as always, let's not forget that the 5970 is 2 GPUs and if we pit 2 5870s against 2 480s, we know what the outcome will be.
Of course, that's if we are talking about pure
performance (and let's face it, that's what enthusiasts care about), regardless of price, tdp et al.
It's no different than comparing a 295 to a 4890.
