honestly you can't say anything
it will perform identical to the 7850
just know that it doesn't matter A LOT, console gpu will be obsolete in 2-3 years which each new amd and nvidia series
in 2 years time a low end card like a gtx 840 should perform identical to the hd 7850
this is what happens in general so be happy with whatever you buy
the gtx 660 is better here, however the gtx 760 has also been launched in the same price range

You can't really compare a PC GPU to a Console GPU - they don't work in the same way and consoles are better optimised, so even though the console GPU might not be as powerful, it may still perform better.

Best solution

Between the 660 and the 7850, the 660 is the better card easily. As far as the PS4 GPU... it doesn't really warrant comparison. Games, OS, and a dozen other things are tailored specifically to work with that GPU and only that GPU.

Aside from that, we don't know much of anything about the PS4's GPU. On the surface it looks to be roughly equivalent to a 7850, but it will probably achieve higher performance because of the software that's using it. Also, the performance will improve as console devs squeeze more and more juice out of it for the next few years through the life of the console.
