in every nvidia driver there are two entries for GX2

NVIDIA_G71.DEV_0293.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2"
NVIDIA_G71.DEV_0294.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX2 "

what is the difference?

I think one is a 7950 GPU's on the old 7900GX2 PCB, never really came to market. The other 7950 GPU's on the new PCB layout.

The older version was 7900GX2 IIRC .. here its stated specifically as 7950GX2.

That is correct, 7900GX2 is the long PCB version.

Yes, I think they realesed the mobile 7900 GPU's, the ones used in current 7950GX2 boards and used them on a 7900GX2 PCB. Then the redesigned PCB was the second incarnation 7950GX2 and the only one really know to the public (some OEM's may have got some of the original big PCB with mobile chip 7950GX2's)
