The Sonic HD4850 is faster than the stock card from Palit by about 300 marks through all four resolutions. The card does not quite reach the performance of the 9800GTX, GTX260 or HD4870. When you push this card it just pushes past the higher end cards in three out of four resolutions with the score in the 1920 resolution within the realm of run to run benchmark variances.
