The Sapphire HD 5850 cannot compete with the dual GPU cards but easily gives the GTX 285 a run for its money outperforming it in three out of four resolutions. Overclocking the 5850 showed gains in performance are possible with a little bit of tweaking, as the card performs almost at the level of the Multi-GPU cards.
