Radeon HD 6800 performance figures leaked

/ 6 years ago

The first performance figures have been leaked for the up and coming Radeon HD 6800. Albeit rumours, it’s the only thing that we have to go by, so darn it, we will trust what they say, until proven otherwise.

The results of the first tests of the Radeon HD 6800 come from XFastest’s website and show the performance of the HD 6850 and HD 6870 in the latest Futuremark applications; 3dMark 06 and 3DMark Vantage.

In the results shown below, you can see the 6800 series cards pitted against Nvidia based cards including the GTX 480, 460 and GTS 450 as well as similar specced AMD cards including the HD 5870, 5850, 5830, 5770 and even the more basic 5750.

We can clearly see from the results that the 6870 actually scores lower that the previous generation 5870 card. When comparing with Nvidia’s offerings, only the GTX 480 comes out on top, whilst the GTX 460 whimpers below the rumoured 6870.

The 6800 series cards, codenamed Barts clearly show some impressive performance and if the results turn out to be more than just a rumour, only price will determine where these cards lay in the consumer market.

3DMark Vantage (Performance-preset)/3DMark06:


GeForce GTX 480: P18376/19671
GeForce GTX 460 (256-bit & 1 Gt): P13623/18601
GeForce GTX 460 (192-bit & 768 Mt): P13386/18259
GeForce GTS 450: P9792/15793


ATI Radeon HD 5870: P17924/19433
AMD Radeon HD 6870: P16270/19480
ATI Radeon HD 5850: P15593/18762
AMD Radeon HD 6850: P14872/18750
ATI Radeon HD 5830: P14014/17298
ATI Radeon HD 5770: P11017/16358
ATI Radeon HD 5750: P9124/14966

    Not too shabby but to be honest i was expecting more. Maybe a new benchmark will come out that the 6850 and 6870 will be utilised for?

    Keeping the BUS memory at 256 bits and not 512 was a smart choice made to keep the stability/temperature/performance ratio balanced. But as thebigbadworlf said, we still need to see some benchmarks of the board first.

    i don`t like this design. overall if it`s better than nvidia and better priced than ati has done it again. but for how long…?
