Its bigger brother beat out the GTX 580 slightly, that is obviously not going to happen here. But where does the R7850 stand? Well it comes in just over the HD 6970, the same card that up until a few months ago was AMD’s flagship single gpu solution. From the Nvidia side of things the R6850 performs just beyond what we saw with our two 550 Ti’s in SLI. The results are consistent all the way across both 3DMark 11 and Vantage, also between performance and extreme/high settings.

No one wants to send out the reference designs because all of the company's sell them. XFX always sends out their best version to us.

But yeah, its funny when you look at the graphs with all of the Black Editions
