Did you confuse the 5870(1600SP) with the 5850 (1440SP)? Yes, the 5870 is the clear winning(edit: err I meant winner), but OP is asking about the 5850.

I vote for 6870 as well.

You can't even compare the stream processors. Different architecture.

Definitely 6870. Its a very good card, almost as powerful as the HD6950 or the GTX560.

First of, i would take the 6870.

Architecture hasn´t changed alot.
OF COURSE you can compare the streaming processors since they have not changed at all. Only difference here is the use of two instead of one "Ultra-Threaded-Dispatch-Processors" to assure a higher utilisation level of the 5D shaders.
That means, while the 5850 definitely has more raw power, i may not be fully utilized under real-life applications (AMD speaking about a factor of 3.5/5). The 6870 on the other hand gets much of its performance from a 25% higher clocked core compared to a 5850.

Tessellation definitely was improved on Barts.

I think that, heavily OC´ing both cards, the 5850 would be somewhat faster in applications without tessellation.

Do not post unless you know what you are talking about.

HD 5850 does not even come close to the HD 6870.

Even the HD 6850 beats the HD 5850 in some cases.

HD 6850 performs similar to GTX 460 1GB model

HD 6870 performs similar to GTX 470 / GTX 560 Ti

+REP very well said. Nothing else you need to know.

First of all you can tell I have a bad video card on my sig but I'm going to upgrade a lot soon. From my personal opinion its better to go with newer cards. I'm not saying old cards are bad or useless. No, not at all. When a new video card comes out to replace an older one it must have improvements over it such as a perfect sample Power Consumption. I didn't say all new cards that replace old ones are good. For example the 550Ti. Its not worth buying cos its suppose to deliver less power consumption and good performance but it didn't.

For me its like this.

6850 > 5850
6870 > 5870

I beg to differ:

http://www.computerbase.de/artikel/g...ating_nach_api

Some 5 to 7% advantage (wich, again is partly bought by a 25% higher clocked core!) means "not even close" for you? I understand that everyone is entitled to his opinion even more when money was spent.
