Nope. Just because the box and overall appearance are similar, they are different GPUs. The HD5870 is the stronger overall performer of the 2 of them. The HD6870 performs on par with the HD5850.

HD 6870 is faster than HD 5850 by 11%, and slower than HD 5870 by 4%. Besides the HD 6870 DX11 Tessellation are much better implemented than in HD 5870.
