HD 6950 CF would be around 1.8x - 1.9x the perf. HD 7950 (1150 Mhz) will perform similar to a HD 6950 CF. But you have to keep in mind single HD 7950 would perform much more consistently without any multi GPU issues like microstuttering or CF profile availability. HD 6950 CF
DX 11 games with high levels of tesselation are going to perform better on HD 7950 overclocked.

IMO overclocked HD 7950 is better than HD 6950 CF. OP you could sell your HD 6950s for 150 bucks each and just spend 30 bucks extra and grab a MSI HD 7950 OC. Its a no brainer
I just want to comment that man, you really love that 7950 don't you. I mean religiously, on pretty much any high end gpu thread, I see you. Nice dedication.
and from your very own posts, and OP's preference for BF3, it would be silly to switch to anything. Do you have any idea how much of a pain it is to sell 2 cards? I certainly didn't have fun making the listings, taking the pictures, and answering the questions posted about my cards. It's not worth it, and definitely not worth paying extra money for that card. I'ts a good card, but not a warrant to side grade that's for sure.
It's a hassle to sell two cards, for a performance loss. Don't bring up the problems with dual card solutions with micro stuttering and all, one they are hardly noticeable, two still doesn't warrant a side grade.
Not saying the 7950 isn't a good card btw, its a fantastic card Edited by Spykerv - 8/2/12 at 10:22pm
