Not possible. I've had a 860m and currently have a 5870(m). The 860m was easily 50% slower. The 5870 was one of the fastest mobile GPUs at the time, when the 860m was middle-class or lower, and already getting old. There is definitely some error or mistake here, or the whole system is not reliable.
