Thank you Iscaran, for originally pointing this out to me and Blood Blade for motivating me to post this.
The article not only explains everything, but also provides links to the downloads that makes this possible. If you need further help, you can find videos on Youtube explaining the process.
The fact is, there is very little difference between an AMD 6950 and 6970. They both have the same GPU. The only thing slowing down the 6950 is the software. Chip manufactures do this to save money. If they only produce one chip instead of two, production costs drop.

Notice the graph and table under "Testing." The 6950 performs just as well as its big brother after the BIOS flash. Also, don't be worried about the 20% power increase. You don't have to be an overclocking genius to do that. It is now built right into AMD's Catalyst Control Center. All you to do is move the on screen slider to the right. Simple.
I hope this will get the sticky treatment. This is very useful information.
