Testing:

3DMark06 is one of the benchmarks that always comes up when a bragging contest has begun. 3DMark06 presents a severe test for many of today's hardware components. Let's see how this setup fares. The settings we will use are listed below.

 

Settings:

  • SM2.0 Graphics Tests: GT1- Return to Proxycon, GT2- Firefly Forest
  • CPU Tests: CPU1- Red Valley, CPU2- Red Valley
  • HDR/SM3.0 Graphics Tests: HDR1- Canyon Flight, HDR2- Deep Freeze

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

Whereas the Sapphire 5870 beat up on all the cards in 3DMark06 except the 4870x2, the 5850 comes close to the performance delivered by it. The 5850 runs out of horsepower at the top end when compared to the Multi-GPU cards, but still lays a whipping on the MATRIX GTX285. A solid performance. The Sapphire 5850 is only about 11% slower than its more capable cousin the 5870.
