When their default image quality was set to "performance" instead of "quality." Overall they're almost identical in performance at stock.
I don't know what you're looking at but the 560 non-Ti is significantly faster than the 6850
Explain to me how the 40W difference between the 6850 and 460 makes the 6850 a better card. It's consumes less power but runs significantly hotter. Most people care much more about the temperature difference than the slightly increased power consumption.
The 6850 does not overclock as well as the 460.
For the most relevant benchmark, 1920x1080 at 4x AA, the overclocked 460 is 15% faster than the overclocked 6850.
What does minimum frames have to do with this? The 560 is still faster than the 6850 for minimum FPS:
On the Frostbyte engine which favors AMD.
Notice the same FPS in F1, a game that favors AMD even more so than BC2.
The 560 is about the same performance as the 6870 and should be priced accordingly.
Notice at 1920x1080 it has the same performance as the 6870.
The 560 is probably still better than the 6870 for a single GPU because it overclocks better.
