Poor performance with 7970m vs previous 6970m

I'm assuming this would be a driver issue, but I recently upgraded my m18x gpu from amd 6970m to amd 7970m and across the board with games I play I am seeing lower fps with the same settings. I'm using the most recent driver Crimson 16.5.3 hotfix, but I also tried the previous Crimson 16.3.2 and have the same problem.  My setup is:

 

m18x r1 alienware laptop

windows 10 OS

i7 2760qm cpu

single amd 7970m gpu

8gig ram

 

My psu should definitely not be an issue, and I believe temps are fine.  From what I read the 7970m should blow away the 6970m so any suggestions to what the issue is here?  Thanks in advance.
