We all remember the 5000 series cards from AMD and how much of an impact they had to the market by offering great performance at a fantastic price point. Shortly after this era, the 6000 series arrived on the scene offering better tessellation and technical effects for that similar pricing structure.

As a lot of brands completely phased out the 5000 series cards, Sapphire were keen to push more performance out of them and still offer that fantastic bang for buck that the 5000 series gave initially but this time with even better pricing.

Today sees us taking a look at the 5850 Xtreme from Sapphire in a look to see how it compares against some of the beefiest, most powerful, cutting edge cards of today, hoping that the 5000 series still has some life left in it and can still pack a punch.
