I don't see why you couldn't use it in crossfire. You don't have to have the same GPUs. You would more than likely have more overclocking headroom with the 6970.

Even a stock 6950 would work with 6970 in crossfire, limited to 6950 specs though. But yes, unlocking/flashing a 6950 to 6970 and pairing it with a 6970 will show identical performance as just buying another 6970.

6970s have different (and faster) memory ICs, and tend to hit slightly better clocks.
Other than that, no difference whatsoever.
