If I'm looking at an ATI card with the number given as 5850, I know that it's part of the current generation ( 5### ) and is a pretty high end card card ( #850 ).
If I see 4350, I'll know it's from the previous generation of cards ( 4### ) and it is an entry level or HTPC card.
It's kinda hard to really know whether an ATI's 4650 is greater than a nvidea 9800GT though, but I think the real difficulty comes from trying to know how much a generation of cards improves from its last generation. (4350 vs 5350 for example)

And how many millions of years did it take to get back to normal? Do you think humans could continue to thrive for just one of those millions?
