Except those benchmarks show the 580s and 6970s trading blows and have almost equivalent performance. You can also overclock the 6970.
You were also wrong to assume he was gaming at 1920x1200. For his specified resolution, the cards perform almost identically:
That review is with the lightning edition 580.
So where is your evidence he is getting better performance from the 580s at 2560x1440, the resolution he is specifying? You did say you:

This was obviously false.
There are plenty of cases, such as for this OP, where the 6970 is just as fast if not faster than the 580s.

I suggest you reword that better.
Why should I reword it? I talked about driver layout, not functionality.
