Synthetic 3D Benchmarks

3DMark is a popular synthetic gaming benchmark used by many gamers and overclockers to gauge the performance of their PC's. All 3DMark runs were performed a total of 5 times, with the highest and lowest results being removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 results.
Results Analysis
Futuremark has placed the HD5850 directly in between the GTX285 and the HD5870. In all but one of the tests, at all of the resolutions, the HD5850 showed it's capabilities. With results such as these,  ATI are sure to have a very smug grin on their face. NVidia on the other hand have been knocked down a peg or two because not only has the ATI flagship utterly destroyed the best the green team has to offer but the HD5870's little brother has also easily surpassed the performance of the GTX285!

Let's see if this transfers over to our real world gaming benchmarks.
