Total Performance Rating

 

The TPR graph is a combination of all our benchmarks in which NVIDIA and ATI are on an even playing field. This includes benchmarks where PhysX can be forced off like Dark Void and Batman: Arkham Asylum, but not Darkest of Days.

 

The TPR number is a combination of:

 

3DMark Vantage, Heaven Benchmark V2, CINEBENCH R11.5, Resident Evil 5, BattleForge, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X., Far Cry 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum (PhysX Off), Dark Void (PhysX Off) and our three High Quality tests which include Far Cry 2, Resident Evil 5 and Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.

 

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.

A good overclock combined with the added CINEBENCH R11.5 performance from the latest driver and the HD 5870 2GB Vapor-X fares very well against the competition. If you take 4000 points off for the extra performance from CINEBENCH R11.5, you can still see it manages to beat out the HD 5870 and the Eyefinity6 version of the card thanks to the OC.
