Overall Performance

Radeon HD 5770, Radeon HD 4890, And GeForce GTX 275 Overclocked
By

This chart simply combines the results from our various benchmarks into an aggregate score, basically a cumulative frame rate measured in fps. The 3DMark06 score is not included in this result.

In our second chart, we use normalized results for each benchmark, converting the scores into percentages and then calculating the final result. This ensures that individual benchmarks in which a single card may score much higher than the remaining models do not skew the results. Effectively, all benchmarks count the same. Ranking the cards’ performance as percentages allows us to demonstrate the real performance deltas between the individual candidates.

Note: in each of the benchmarks, the slowest card is used as the reference point of 100 percent. Since even the card that appears as the weakest model in our cumulative overview did not place last in every benchmark, it also scores higher than 100 percent.

    I'm struggling to figure out why people keep using The Last Remnant as a benchmark considering how skewed its results are in favour of nVidia cards. Apart from that, good guide.

    Nvidia bias as usual from THG.

    An HIS 5770 is available in Australia for under $A200, Powercolor even cheaper. Fantastic value, particularly with the scope for overclocking. I'll be in India for the next two months, interesting to check Mumbai prices.

    Nice guide.I'm happy how you tested it with the tom clancy's games,and fallout 3,but,to make it better Crysis & Crysis warhead should be in the list,those games need a powerfull engine:) Nice anyway.

    The 5870 and 5970 came out on the open market like what 3 months ago. It is odd that these guys cant acknowledge there EXISTENCE. I do believe they are biased in there benchmarks. I mean if u can show Nvideas 2gig card why on earth wouldnt u show ATI`s 2gig card. Or even the 1gig. Not very honest on there part i am ashamed to say.
