More about : decrease performance reference reference 5850 Best solution OvrClkr August 3, 2010 5:19:02 AM no, both models are running at the same clock therefor both will perform the same. the reference biostar has voltage control so it's a better bang for buck card vs. the XFX. On the other hand the XFX has lifetime warranty.. Those are basically the differences between both cards. Share droylock August 3, 2010 5:23:38 AM Ok i currently have the xfx model but i wanted to know any decrease besides overclocking which i knew, i appreciate your quick response!!! m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
