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.

We can see that there's a clear difference between the two HD 6900 models. Compared to the NVIDA offerings we're almost perfectly in line with the GTX 480 which offers similar performance to the stock GTX 570.

The main reason the HD 6970 continues to fall a bit behind, though, is because the NVIDIA offerings perform stronger at the lower resolution. At 2560 x 1600, though, you really do see a a different picture.
