Hi,

Essentially, the HD6950 is a lower clocked (GPU and memory) version of the 6970 with fewer stream and texture units:

Real-world performance is

The 6950 is also available in 1GB versions - again, better value for money vs a minor drop in frame rates, although EyeFinity multi-monitor gaming would be better served by the 2GB version:

Nb - if you look at the various benchmarks at 1900 x 1200, there are a few FPS differences between the 6950 and 6970.

No. You will get full of 2GB memory on ATI Radeon x HD 6950. It doesn't matter how many HDMI ports you have.

Both are excellent cards.    Although the 6970 is a "higher end" card in ATI's lineup, the 6950 is a superb value with virtually identical performance for ~ $100 less.      The cards are essentially tied in PassMark's GPUMark ==>  the 6950 scores 3017,  the 6970 scores 3020.
