He probably meant if you can unlock those disabled CUs by flashing 570 to 580.

Which isn't possible, since AMD Disabled those CUs Physically. Source: Various Reddit Threads, that have flashed a 470 to a 480 (which works, mind you), but did not unlock any CUs - Ergo: probably disabled by a fine tuned laser.

 

Apparently some 470s had problems, getting over 1290 MHz, which they don't when flashed to an 480 Bios. Still: No CUs and still less power than the 480. Since the 570/580's are the same Chips, i highly doubt, that there is any difference. Flashable? Probably, but only advisable if you've got a BIOS switch on that 570.


Good news everyone...!
