There is nothing inherant with the boost edition that would prevent that on other samples though. 7950's become a 7950 for one of two reasons: speed (i.e. they are slower than XT ASIC's) or harvesting (some CU's need to be disabled). Now, the harvested ASIC's actually have the same speed distribution as the XT's, so in many cases the opportunity good overclock (as measured as a percentage delta from the base / default speed) is even greater on the PRO than the XT.
Statistically speaking! :)
