Common users just don't care if the graphics card they are about to buy has one GPU, a couple of them or a hundred. They care about performance, cost and possibly energy comsumption. Therefore, comparing a Radeon 5970 to a GTX 580 seems completely justified to me given that the MSRP is nearly the same for both of them. On the other hand, comparing a GTX 580 ($500) to a Radeon 5870 ($300) does seem a bit misleading to me.

Things are not as simple as they seems at first. - Edward Thorp
