    Mistake!
    “The core of the HD 6950 runs at 800MHz and packs in 1408 stream processors along with 88 texture units and 32 ROPs. The 2GB GDDR5 memory of the GPU is running at 1.25GHz.”
    “The elder sibling of the HD 6970 – the HD 6950 packs in 1536 stream processors, 96 texture units and 32 ROPs. The core of the GPU is clocked at 880 MHz while the 2GB GDDR5 memory runs at 1.375 GHz.”

    In both you have specified the tech specs for HD6950 :P It should be “The elder sibling of the HD 6950 – the HD6970 packs in 1536…”
