Total Performance Rating

The TPR graph is a combination of all our benchmarks in which NVIDIA and ATI are on an even playing field. This includes benchmarks where PhysX can be forced off like Dark Void and Batman: Arkham Asylum, but not Darkest of Days.

The TPR number is a combination of:

3DMark Vantage, Heaven Benchmark V2, CINEBENCH R11.5, Resident Evil 5, BattleForge, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X., Far Cry 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum (PhysX Off), Dark Void (PhysX Off) and our three High Quality tests which include Far Cry 2, Resident Evil 5 and Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X.

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.

I've become a huge fan of the TPR graphs; they do a fantastic job of putting everything into perspective. It also gives you an idea of how a model compares to ones that aren't included in the review. For example, above is a prime example on a whole of how the HD 5970 TOXIC 4GB @ 1000MHz Core and 5036MHz QDR on the memory goes against the standard HD 5970 2GB and also the GTX 480 when overclocked using voltage adjustment.

If anyone wanted to complain that it's unfair that the GTX 480 OC wasn't included in the review, or is disappointed that the standard HD 5970 wasn't included, you can look at the above graph and get an idea of how the model we're reviewing performs against those other said models.

And Oh how it performs!
