If one system is slightly faster even at these high settings then this to me is far more important information than whatever system is faster than 1024x768 low settings.
A single 6950 isn't enough to test what the CPU limit is. If they were going to use high res and aa they should have used two (or three) 6970s or 580s to show which cpu gives the best scaling.
