When running the popular open-source Nexuiz game at 2560 x 1600, the Sapphire Radeon HD 5830 is approximately 20% faster than the Radeon HD 5770 and GeForce GTX 460. At lower resolutions with Nexuiz the performance between these two competitors though is much closer due to Nexuiz not being too stressful on modern hardware with proprietary drivers. The Radeon HD 6870 was faster than the Radeon HD 5830 by about 20%.

The situation with Warsow was similar for these graphics cards. The Sapphire Radeon HD 5830 is 58% faster than the previous-generation Radeon HD 4830 for this Qfusion-powered open-source game.

With the OpenGL Lightsmark lighting benchmark, the Radeon HD 5830 was faster than the HD 4830 by 2.17x. It was also faster than the GeForce GTX 460 by 35% and 20% for the Radeon HD 5770. The Radeon HD 6870 was ahead by 17%.
