Radeon HD 5850: Knocking Down GTX 295 In CrossFire

Benchmark Results: Far Cry 2

More great results for ATI’s Radeon HD 5850 here. One card outperforms the GeForce GTX 285, while two best the GTX 295 and SLI’d GTX 285s. Moreover, the gain stepping up from the Radeon HD 4890 to 5850 is fairly substantial.

ATI maintains its lead over Nvidia’s lineup, in addition to the card preceding the 5800-series in ATI’s own product stack. That’s right—a single Radeon HD 5850 is even able to stand up to the Radeon HD 4870 X2.
