5850 Upgrade

I am not really interested in upgrading right now but interested in the new cards out there.

I was reading reviews of some 6900 cards, and noticed there were also some 6800 cards which I didn't know where there before. So I am wondering how does my 5850 compare with all the new cards and if I were to upgrade, what card would give me the most improved performance?

This review explains some of the details of the new cards, but does not mention the 5850 in comparison too much.

5850 is likely about the same or slightly less performance than the 68xx cards. You would have to move to the 69xx or the Nvidia 5xx cards to get anything remotely noticeable.

With your card, I would recommend just waiting till next year.
