Are you reffering to games? The whole reason I kept my 5850 was due to better performance in the games I played.
Mechwarrior (Crysis Mod)
Fallout NV - 470 did better here if I'm not mistaken
Now, both cards played these games at more than playable framerates anyways.
I think the thing that made the 5850 better for me was running it a 1ghz core 1200 ram and the fact it ran much cooler.
