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 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.




This is where we really see the advantage of what we've done today. Thanks to the added performance, which brings it to the same level as the HD 6970, combined with the HD 6950 price tag, we have one of the better valued setups.


Of course, this could go to another level once we overclock the card. The only reason we haven't looked at overclocking yet, though, is because we're waiting for a version of overclocking software that will allow us to adjust the voltage of the core on the HD 6900 series.
