I gave it a shot. Basically my Mac Pro with a GTX680 was a little bit slower in the first benchmark (ca. 3000) and a little bit faster in the last benchmark (5600) at the same settings as mentioned in the article.

Looks like the NVIDIA driver delivers similar performance on Mac/Win/Linux.

It seems very AMD optimized compared to NVIDIA. (furmark part)
The GTX680 scoring 3000ish while a 5870 scoring 2700 and a GTX285 2000.
The 5870 should be much closer to a 285 than a 680 in terms of real world performance.

I can see from win7 that it scores 5.2k on 7970 and 3.1k on GTX680, where most benchmarks a GTX680 would be pretty much equal or slightly faster than a 7970.
