“More details of AMD’s up-coming Radeon HD 6850 and 6870 cards have leaked, and this time we’ve got some hard numbers – albeit ones that don’t paint the new devices in a particularly good light.”

On the internet you can find some benchmark results that may well show the current performance levels of the HD6850 and HD6870, ones that are not terribly encouraging. The results were purportedly generated from tests of using 3DMark Vantage and 3DMark 2006 and both cards seem to have scored lower than the HD5800 cards that preceded them. If the leak is valid it raises some interesting questions about the drivers, benchmark integration and performance of the cards in games. Check out the actual scores at bit-tech.
