Default Radeon 6950 vs. 6970

Whats the real difference between these guys? Im looking at the performance and im not seeing a significant increase in clock and mem speed, or in reviews, any kind of major fps difference. What does my extra ~ 80$ get me in terms of performance if i go with the 6970 instead of the 6950? Thanks!

I use AnandTech for my comparisons, but I'd look for comparisons based specifically on the games you play if you want a better idea.

AnandTech - Bench - GPU11 - 6950 vs 6970
Doesn't look like $80 worth of difference to me, but I could be missing something too.

Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.

There's only like ~10%-15% difference in performance between the 2 cards.
