I don't understand why you ppl complicate so much. Just look at the shader count. HD7950 has 1792 shaders, HD7970 has 2048 shaders. This is something that never changes unlike countless different clocks used by different vendors...

For the exact brand or model, open the case and read the model from card itself (specific detailed model and revision on PCB)
