Because the HD7870 has the exact same dual engine as the HD7970 and runs nearly 100 mhz higher. The benchmark is accurate.
Fair enough its a Ghz 7870 then?

I don't really get what you mean there, all 7870's are Ghz edition.
Meaning that it has higher clocks than the stock 7970's 925Mhz so the graph makes sense. :)

Since going from ATI to Nvidia all I can say is that I am a Nvidia fanboi now. Sure nvidia cards might be more expensive than ATI cards, but they run more stable, feel way smoother in games and don't overheat like PoS ati cards (my last 2 cards had overheating issues). I think ATI is just a tight ass option and this time around I decided to spend the extra and go with the green. ATI just look good on paper but in reality its like buying the cheap chinese TV vs the Nice Japanese made TV.
