You skipped over the post that contained 470s beating stock 580s, but continue talking smack just because you have no clue and are waiting for someone to feed you information because you're unable to obtain it yourself.
The 7970 seems like a great card, it improves on AMD's image quality and clearly it's performance as well. I hope anyone who purchases one or more enjoys them for years to come.
gtx 470 is fermi, while the gtx 580 is also fermi.....doesn't seem hard to believe that a watercooled 470 could be comparable to a stock 580...
But....MSI lightning GTX 580 would make (bigcactus) pretty jelly i'm guessing b/c they are faster than stock 580s
