Galaxy and Palit GeForce GTX 470s in SLI - Total Performance Rating (TPR)

With two GTX 470s on hand it's time to get some SLI action happening. What do we think of our first GTX 400 SLI experience?

Total Performance Rating

 

The TPR graph is a combination of all our benchmarks in which NVIDIA and ATI are on an even playing field. This includes benchmarks where PhysX can be forced off like Dark Void and Batman: Arkham Asylum, but not Darkest of Days.

 

The TPR number is a combination of:

 

3DMark Vantage, Heaven Benchmark V2, CINEBENCH R11.5, Resident Evil 5, BattleForge, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X., Far Cry 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum (PhysX Off), Dark Void (PhysX Off) and our three High Quality tests which include Far Cry 2, Resident Evil 5 and Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.

 

All of the benchmark results achieved are then combined into a single number. As this graph will grow over time and cards won't be re-tested, next to each model you'll find the driver version that was used when the card was benchmarked.

SLI Setup performance is strong; it has no trouble passing many of the setups including the standard HD 5970 and GTX 480. It falls slightly behind the massive card that is the HD 5970 TOXIC from Sapphire. There are only two things now that I think are capable of hitting the HD 5970 TOXIC off its top spot; overclocking this current setup or moving to SLI GTX 480s.
