It is a higher end model than a 7770
The first letter is the generation, and the last 3 are the performance indicators.
For example a 6850 is from the 6xxx series of AMD cards. It is a part of the 800 series due to the second 8 and is a 50 in terms of performance.
A 6950 is more powerful than a 6850. A 6870 is more powerful than a 6850.
The second digit is most important, with the last two digits being second most important.
The first digit represents the series. Each series will have different characteristics. For example, in low tessellation games, a 5850 will outperform a 6850. If the game includes tessellation, then the 6850 will usually outperform a 5850.
Nothing is 100% concrete as there are multiple variables to consider.
