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 from the above graph the amount of power that's on offer from the GTX 580 Lightning Xtreme Edition from MSI. It's not only the fastest GTX 580 we've tested, but it's the fastest single GPU card we've tested period. Compared to the GTX 590, it's not all that much behind either; there's just some serious power on offer from this GTX 580 and it reminds us why we love the Lightning series so much.
Choosing to go down the path of 3GB might not bring with it much more performance over a 1.5GB model, but it does make for the ultimate GTX 580 and honestly, if you're spending this kind of money, that's exactly what you want.
