That can be said about every card. Apples to apples (same settings) the 470 is almost twice as fast as the 260. And in fact DX11 is faster than DX10 when the same settings are used. Of course if you enable DX11 features, framerates drop, but it looks better too. If you tone down the settings enough a 8800GT will get exactly the same frames than your 260, and can subjectively look the same too.
