HIS Radeon HD 6850 1GB Video Card in Crossfire - Total Performance Rating (TPR)

Having checked out both the new HD 6850 and HD 6870 cards separately, it's now time to turn our attention to other areas of interest with the new models. First up? Some HD 6850 Crossfire goodness thanks to HIS coming aboard. Has scaling improved?

Total Performance Rating

 

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

 

The TPR number is a combination of:

 

3DMark Vantage, Heaven Benchmark V2, Resident Evil 5, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X., Mafia 2 (PhysX Off), Lost Planet 2, Aliens vs. Predator, Final Fantasy XIV, 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.

TPR finds performance is very close to the HD 5970. The overall picture doesn't paint the whole picture, though, and the two largest scoring tests in our line up, 3DMark Vantage and Final Fantasy XIV, favor the GTX 460 1GB OC SLI setup. Really, if you break it down in to the individual benchmarks, the HD 6850 CF setup wins out almost every time.
