Default 6950 review inaccurate?

Hello,

As you guys may know, a while back ago in January 2011, Hardware Canucks did a review on the 6950 1gb. But for some reason, the review greatly differs from another respected site

Specifically, the overclocking potential, the power consumption and temperatures on the 6950 1gb are much better in the review posted by techgage. I can understand why the overclocking can differ from card to card but I don't understand how the heat and power usage could also be so different. I heard that the 6950 1gb cards had revised PCB's a while back, so could this be the reason why the 6950 1gigs did so differently? If that is the case then the original review would be inaccurate and I think that a re review should be done. Especially now that the older PCB's are already depleted and no longer being sold. What do you guys think?
