My understanding is that it's not only that. Another aspect is that 5870 and 5850 both use the exact same Cypress chip, and that 5850's are only made out of chips that do not pass requirements for 5870 performance (clocks, stability etc). So if there is no deffect, then AMD would of course prefer to sell it as a 5870 for much more profit.
