WEI is a fail, you can totally ignore it.

Dont pay attention to it, Xfire 6950's will normally beat my 570 and my 570 gets a 7.9

WEI - to put simply; is a completely unimportant, non-relevant, and impractical measure of a computer's true performance potential.

If you want to know what's going on for sure download some software like Furmark, GPU-Z etc and monitor your cards under load.
You'll be able to see if there's actually a problem or not (not what WEI has to say about it).

The reason is quite simple, ATi/AMD is tricking you into buying a better videocard. If you think this is false, just uninstall your current display drivers, then install 11.5, or earlier drivers, youwill get 7.7 to 7.9 in WEI!!

11.5 and earlier drivers will give you back your 7.7 to 7.9 score, all because before AMD bought ATI, ATI was not into tricking its customers.
