Same sort of thing happened with my friend's EVGA 7900GT, EVGA replaced his with a 7950. Although that was kind of a downgrade because his 7900GT was pre-overclocked higher than the 7950 (probably the reason behind it needing replaced lol). Although the performance between them is very small.

The 7950 is basically just a 7900 with higher clocks, so it will be faster, but not much faster I would think.
