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.




While not shown here for the simple reason being that we didn't benchmark the card at its stock clocks, it's safe to assume that its numbers would be almost identical to the GIGABYTE model at stock clocks. That means the rating on the card would be a 107 due to the higher price of $269.99 over at Newegg. When overclocked, that figure is pushed to 109 which can be seen in the above graph thanks to the extra performance with the card costing no more.


The heavy focus on Afterburner from MSI means that overclocking has to clearly be taken into account.
