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.




You can see performance is extremely strong. From a single card perspective it manages to beat out the heavily clocked GTX 580 Matrix XE from MSI which means that the HD 6870x2 has no issue dealing with the GTX 580.
