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
