GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 480 Video Card - Total Value Rating (TVR)

Our first GTX 480 arrives and it's a sexy looking retail one. Let's see how the GIGABYTE GTX 480 looks and goes.

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.

As we climb up the performance table the overall value of products tend to drop. That's the cost of being on the bleeding edge of technology. As you can see, while the model is faster than the HD 5870, its value isn't as good.
