Total Performance Rating

 

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

 

The TPR number is a combination of:

 

3DMark 11, Heaven Benchmark V2, Resident Evil 5, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.2, Mafia 2 (PhysX Off), Lost Planet 2, Aliens vs. Predator, 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.

Performance compared against other HD 6870s is actually pretty strong. It's ahead of both the reference card and the XFX and compared to the HIS there's only a few points separating them. The only HD 6870 that really shows itself ahead is the MSI HAWK which is quite expensive and had voltage bumped in the core, AUX and memory department.
