Galaxy GeForce GTX 480 Super OC 1536MB Video Card - Total Value Rating (TVR)

Galaxy make the fastest single GPU card faster. The question we ask is whether or not they can also make it better.

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.

When you get to the higher end market of cards, it's no surprise that overall value begins to drop. What we do see here is that compared to the HD 5870 the value is better, and compared to the stock clocked card, just in terms of performance, its value is very similar, which is good considering the extra dollars that are associated with this model.

 

What this graph doesn't take into account is just how much better the cooler is, and to some that holds a priceless value.
