no, they will just return the card how u sent it but fixed, unless they have to replace the whole card for some reason, which will probably just be in wateva u shipped the card to them in.

aw i have to wait for them to fix it? that sucks, hopefully they have to replace it, one of the gpu's failed and fails to start and is detected as a 7900 gtx, you think they can fix that? (i dont think they wud seperate the two gpu's and put another gpu in the pace of the other half?)

the gpu might not be actually damaged, maybe a bios problem or sumthin. 7950gx2's are not manufactured anymore so im guessing they will try their best to fix it.

If they do have to replace it, and don't have any instock of that brand, you could/might get a different brand in return.

Since they haven't made 7950gx2's for a while you might get a newer/better card as a replacement.
