Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 4GB Video Card in AUSUM Mode - Total Performance Rating (TPR)

We flick Sapphire's HD 6990 4GB over to AUSUM mode, close our eyes and power on the system. We've survived to tell you about the extra grunt on offer!

Total Performance Rating

 

The TPR graph is a combination of all our benchmarks in which NVIDIA and AMD are on an even playing field.

 

The TPR number is a combination of:

 

3DMark 11, Heaven Benchmark V2, Resident Evil 5, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.2, Mafia 2 (PhysX Off), Lost Planet 2, Aliens vs. Predator, Street Fighter IV, Far Cry 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum (PhysX Off) and our four High Quality tests which include Mafia 2, Aliens vs. Predator, Street Fighter IV and Far Cry 2.

 

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.

Overall we see a clear boost in performance which puts the card now almost on top of the HD 6970 CF setup. It really shows us that a lot of the time the extra core speed is more beneficial than the memory speed.
