Remember the card is overclocked. Its scoring about 10 frames more then a stock 5870. Hope that helps :)

But the OC'ed one got less FPS? Seems like sometimes going too high with the overclock gets you less FPS.

ahhh ok I was looking at the base score my bad. Ya overclocking sometimes does not help in games, just depends. I am not sure what happened there Mark can explain it or even double check the did label it correctly.

The card is an overclocked HD5870 not HD 5850 if that splains it. And yes an overclock that is a little to high on the memory will show a net decrease in FPS in some games.
