The GTX 580 is better, and it's more expensive. The GTX 570 is about the same as the 6970, but it can't drive more than 2 monitors by itself (compared to the 4 monitors a 6970 can drive). Also, 2GB framebuffer ensures that the cards can perform at high resolutions, especially in crossfire.
Come on Rollo... try harder.
Agreed. They also aren't $500 by themselves. People keep expecting them to compete against a 580. But hey, if you want the absolute fastest single gpu card right now, that is easily nvidia.
