MSI Radeon HD 6850 Cyclone 1GB Power Edition Video Card - Total Value Rating (TVR)

MSI bring the Cyclone cooler to the HD 6850 while strapping on the "Power Edition" tag. We answer what that means for you.

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.

Most surprising out of everything, though, is the hyper aggressive $195 USD price tag MSI are throwing on the model. That price tag and the out of the box performance helps the overall value of the card sit atop the mountain.
