At the moment and I can't find any. However I can tell you that they will be very similar in performance.
One thing to keep in mind however is that most benchmarks (especially 3dMark) are always going to lean on better performance on ATi's part. What ATi does is make a fast GPU, a "hyper" version of the one that came before it, updating some things here and there and putting on a giant HSF (heatsink/fan).
nVIDIA on the other hand, designs their GPU's to be more of a image quality coupled with performance style of build, they might look to perform a little bit less, but look alot better ingame. Also the 7800 GTX hasnt seen it's glory days yet, when the hardware put into it is utilized in games, we will see a huge jump in it's performance over the x850's same with the 6800's.
