Barbarian Inferno DPS Question

Hello guys, A quick question.
I recently got myself a 1 hander weapon with 850 dps.
And It shows on my "damage" when I only do ~15k dps.
I've seen top barbarians able to do more than 50~60k dps with a 1h unbuffed.

I'm just wondering how is it possible considering the top damage 1h weapon is roughly around 1200 dps and its not much higher than the 850 dps weapon i just got??

Strength, attack speed, crit hit chance, crit hit damage.

Bonuses such as Strength, Attack Speed, Critical Hit chance, etc all modify your displayed DPS. A difference in 400 listed dps on two different weapons could equate to a much higher difference in DPS if the 1200 dps weapon also gives big bonuses to Strength and Attack Speed and all that.
