HIS Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card w/ 1120 Shaders Overclocked - Total Value Rating (TVR)

We begin to get down and dirty with the HD 6800 series. First we start with the HIS HD 6850 running a BIOS with 1120 Shaders (vs. the reference 960).

Manufacturer: HIS

Total Value Rating

 

The TVR graph is the TPR score divided by the price of the video card. The price of the video card is based on the list price of the model on Newegg.com. In the event the card isn't listed, it will be based on the U.S. $ MSRP given to us by the manufacturer.

 

In the event we can't source a price from either, the product will not receive a TVR rating. As with our TPR graph, the amount of video cards on the list will grow over time and the price of the model won't change from what it was when first reviewed. For this reason the U.S. $ price that the card is based off will be included next to the name of the model.

 

In the event you want to find the TVR rating yourself based on the current price, all you have to do is simply divide the TPR number by the list price.

 

TVR numbers are rounded to the nearest whole number; 100.3 will be 100; 100.8 will be 101 and 100.5 will be rounded down to 100.

You can see thanks to all that extra performance and the same lovely price tag, the HIS HD 6850 at 970MHz / 4000MHz QDR jumps straight to the top. While we've mentioned that we don't adjust the pricing of the cards in the TVR once they're added, adjusting the price of the ECS Black GTX 460 1GB OC to $200 sees the overclocked cards TVR jump to 227, a nice increase, but not quite the 251 we're seeing from the HIS HD 6850 1GB.
