HIS Radeon HD 6870 1GB Video Card in Crossfire - Total Value Rating (TVR)

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.




The value for the HD 6870 in single card form wasn't as strong as the HD 6850, so it comes as no surprise that value does sit towards the bottom of the scale here. The setup continues to show better value than top single card setups, though; cards like the GTX 480, HD 5870 and HD 5970, and we can clearly see it offers more performance than all of them.
