Does the uninstall process you have up there work differently than what driver sweeper does?

Some people say not to use driver sweeper because it leaves behind some values and sometimes it can remove others which you may need for other hardware.

I'd suggest just giving the guide a shot, it shouldn't take longer than 25 minutes the first time you do it. Follow it closely and see what happens, don't miss anything and be careful not to delete any of the wrong registry entries accidentally. Try the latest drivers after following that guide and let me know what happens.

If that doesn't work, perhaps remove one card and test each by itself - then install both and enable xFire again and see if the issue appears again - that will help narrow it down some at least.

I forgot to mention, don't forget to follow the steps I mentioned in my earlier post for turning off automatic driver installation in Windows 8 prior to uninstalling your drivers. If you forget, Windows will just restore the old drivers on boot almost immediately, and you will have wasted your time following the removal guide.

Click: start/right click my computer/properties/advanced system settings/hardware/device installation settings/....... choose no and never install drivers to keep win 8 from updating the drivers after you remove them.

It seems as though you are assuming its not a hardware related issue. Your logic makes sense, since it only happens when new drivers are applied. However, I do know that AMD has been making efforts to fix the 'microstutter issue' associated with crossfiring their cards. so IMHO, there could be something wrong with this particular model and how it communicates with the newly 'crossfire enhanced' drivers. or perhaps its the crossfire bridge, or PLX chip, or ROM or whatever AMD uses on the hardware side to facilitate crossfire. Or perhaps its some non-reference PCB not communicating properly with the new drivers. (not sure if you said the cards were reference design or not).

Please try each 6970 (Not crossfired) with the new drivers and see if you are still getting the corrupted output.

Edit:
lol, just saw that you tried it with each card. maybe I should read the whole thread next time....

Yes, it does. I've used it 3 times with Win8 Pro 64-bit and it's worked perfectly each time, unlike Driversweeper which actually damaged my installation on one occasion.
