Hate to break it to you but it will bottleneck dual 570s if I bottlenecked 3 280's at 4.5ghz on my i5. I even had a slight bottleneck with dual 280s at 4.3ghz and seemed the higher the CPU clock the higher the GPU scores.

Also I made mention in the buy thread this.
Quote:
Few problems with this, 7970 is under premature drivers, single card vs dual card, all of those benches are Nvidia biased, 2 cards wont always perform that great in every scenario, 7970 can OC like a bad mother, and when Nvidia releases their refresh (coming soon) the 7970 is going to drop. Also as was said, 2 570s for 500? Ha.
If you can get 2 570s for 500 then stop to think why they are selling them that cheap, and what they are upgrading to. Also, with the way the 7950 is shaping up you can probably get it for cheaper than 450 and get 7970 performance + with it. Looks like it might be a shader unlocker. Get another later on down the road and you have way better than dual 570 performance. This is coming from strictly an Nvidia guy. The new 7000 series is a goodie.
