More about 5770 6850
  1. Go with the ATI 6850. It's the newer generation, refined chipset. Performs better. The 6850 actually outperforms the ATI 5830, which is better than the ATI 5770.

    Specs don't always mean anything. ;)
  2. 6850 is faster than a gtx 460 wich is faster than a 5770
  3. Last time I saw benchmarks I believe the HD 6850's performance was between the HD 5830 and HD 5850...

    The speed that they run at is only part of the equation --- the 6850 has a 256 bit memory bus while the 5770 is 128 bit so the 6850 can process twice as much per clock cycle if they were running at the same speed and the speed difference is less than 50% so the 6850 is faster !
  5. Thanks a bunch i thoguht it had to do with 256 bit.
