Hey, I thought that was not possible. Radeon HD 6950 take noticable performance hit if you put it on PCIe x8 slot.
Since your board chipset is 970. The PCIe slot should not be able to work at x16/x16.
Are you sure the game setting are similar?
Are you comparing the 1 card vs 2 cards at the same clock speed?
If yes, congratulation then!
Radeon HD 6000 series performance gain from single to dual card configuration most of the time is between 80-100%.
My Radeon HD 6990 did not manage to keep Metro 2033 above 60 FPS all the time. Although it manages to keep the frame rate around 60 FPS most of the time, sometimes
it still drop below 50 FPS.
