Default Updated List of Video Card GPU Voodoopower Ratings!!!!!

(UPDATE: Added notebook GPUs to a separate list, below the main list!!!)

(---For a quick search, just press Ctrl+F and then type in whatever brand/number you're interested in, and your browser will highlight it for you---)

Welcome to the internet's most accurately categorized list of top ranked video cards with relative performance ratings, for newcomers and enthusiasts alike!

Somewhere between 500 to 1,000 online video card review articles were studied for the culmination of this data, whew.

For the beginners, keep in mind that all the Radeon 7/6/5xxx and Geforce 6/5/4xx cards can play DX11 games. All of the Radeon 2xxx to 4xxx and Geforce 8xxx to 2xx cards can play DX10 games, but not DX11. As to the Radeons with numbers X19xx or below and the Geforces with numbers 7xxx or below, these cards are limited to DX9.0c.

Special Note: The overall average performance of multi-GPU cards from review site benchmarks receive a somewhat modest 15% penalty for having two major impediments: microstuttering that is still not yet fully resolved with the current generation, and multi-GPU scaling that does not work for at least 15% of games out there - actually performing worse than a single-GPU configuration in many cases. Another impediment is that triple buffering cannot be forced as true triple buffering with Alternate Frame Rendering, so if one wishes to play with Vsync enabled, one would experience the fractioning of the frame rates whenever it drops below the monitor refresh rate; however, the lack of true triple buffering does not count as a penalty. ** NEW EXCEPTION: GTX 690 is penalized by only 7.5% instead of the usual 15% due to microstuttering finally being fixed to a good extent!

The percentages are for comparing cards within the same class (they could be multiplied with the next class by using 1.23 for 23% for example.. anyways), while the patented (just kidding) trademark, GPUpower[sup]TM[/sup] is a linear overall performance scale of a card in an average out of several dozen popular modern PC games released in the last few years that scales normally well without being CPU-bound or dependent on unusual or exclusive features like PhysX or CUDA for example.

EDIT: GPUpower is changed to Voodoopower[sup]TM[/sup] (just kidding on the TM part again) for the following reason:
That way, homage is paid to the last Voodoo card ever made, the mythical Voodoo 5 6000, since it has approximately ONE Voodoopower (GPUpower) unit rating. Actually, it's the closest card to exactly 1 GPUpower that I could think of.

There! We have a unit similar to the horsepower rating for cars, yet much more comprehensive, like how a car would perform on many different racing tracks, put together for an average! A Geforce GTX 580 has 180 Voodoopower--180 times as much power as 3Dfx's last GPU. Also, it has 18 times as much power as a 6800 Ultra, the first DX9.0c flagship card. A Radeon 9700 Pro, the first DX9 card, would have nearly 5 Voodoopower. Radeon 8500, the first DX8.1 card would have just over 2 Voodoopower. Geforce 2 GTS would have about 1.3 Voodoopower, while Geforce 2 Ultra, the last mighty DX7 card, possesses 1.6 of these mysterious units.

This Voodoopower is a magical unit captured from the last incarnation of 3DFx's glory--it was the mightiest unit that 3dfx could barely impose on us gamers before taking its Voodoo5 6000 with it to the grave. Word has it that only 150 engineering samples escaped this horrendous fate and that only 30 of them actually worked with slightly tweaked drivers (although with a workable PCI hardware bug yet literally suicidal incompatibility with many motherboards). (L) Loving tribute--for more on the 6000, see: http://www.x86-secret.com/articles/d...0/v56kgb-6.htm


VP = Voodoopower

--- (note: For multi-GPU setups, generally multiply the single card score by 1.55 to 1.6, depending on how new the cards are - it scales a little better with each new generation for newer games, with better driver support. See "Special Note" - a few paragraphs above - for the reasons to this. The score is for the overall gaming experience with a vast library of at least several dozen modern PC games.)

(This website was of tremendous help for the ratings: http://www.notebookcheck.net - with a cool comparison chart:
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-...ist.844.0.html )

It was very very difficult to do this, with there being so few benchmark reviews out there for the notebook GPUs. I had to use my understanding of how each particular architecture (Juniper, Barts, GT200, GF106, etc..) perform according to their bigger discrete video card brothers (for the desktop PC), by trying to as accurately evaluate the bottlenecking factors (bandwidth, ROPs, and TMUs) with the given specs and clocks. For example, HD 7750 has roughly half the shader compute power of HD 7770 but performs only about 28% slower overall since the 7770 was pretty badly bottlenecked by the same amount of bandwidth - this is how important it was to really understand how each of the different specifications for each GPU affected its overall performance.

I plan on adding more cards, but would like to know if you see any deviations that stand out for now. If anything, it would be appreciated, so please feel free to help with pointing anything out.




*DISCLAIMER - (whoa, yes, there's a serious, eerie disclaimer lurking in the dark corner)-- The ranking list tries to take into account the overall performance in as many games as possible, not just a selected handful of games. The performance under consideration does not include PhsyX, Stereo3D, CUDA, Eyefinity, or other proprietary features limited to either Geforce or Radeon cards. It is just to let you know where your video card would rank in overall performance using a 1080p monitor with at least 8x AF forced from the control panel as today's standard for many of the mid-range cards (and higher resolutions for the higher-end cards), as today's low-end monitors usually offer native resolutions of 1080p or 1680x1050 which uses nearly as many pixels as 1080p. By the way, AA is sometimes automatically enabled if the game pre-configures the settings according to the video card, and is highly recommended even if it means upgrading your video card.

With anything lower than the lowest-ranked card, forget about playing even Bioshock from 5 years ago at 1680x1050! (The 6800 Ultra that cost $500 7 years ago cannot even play Bioshock low settings at over 15fps)! :hello: :hello:

How does this differ from Tom's Hardware GPU hierarchy chart?

I can see how the tiers on this list can get quite large, and fewer cards are listed. Do the large tiers on this list overlap at all in performance?

I noticed that too. Probably because it's not a reference AMD card. It's an AIB design.

Yes the tiers can certainly overlap especially as the performance can be quite variable among different games for different video cards. It's just an overall gauge that tries to be accurate as possible, but since it is so much more variable and complicated than the "horsepower" ratings for cars, we'll never really have a perfect gauge for overall performance in games.

Is the formatting really that hard? I don't think you need all the colors and what not, and after you actually get the format done it's just a simple of editting new stuff.

Eitherway, I've liked your VP rating and still think it should be posted front page over there.

Also, I read the PI thread - woof. You handled yourself far better than I would have and I don't even have kids yet. Kudos!

Thank you, railven. Your compliment is truly heartfelt here.

Ok, I'll go ahead and format it for ATF here.

P.S. Thank you, thank you , thank you... Railven this is just what I needed to hear!! Now I feel like I have PMS or something, being so emotional.. whoo! (But don't worry, there aren't any tears coming from my eyes.)

Haha, no problem. However, I didn't do anything put just state my opinion!

Eitherway, kudos on getting that format fixed rather quickly. I guess since I don't normally check so far down the totem pole, I didn't realize you had included APUs into the list.

Woof those things are terribad! Glad I didn't build my living room PC off an A8.

Yeah, it was actually quite easy to edit the format for here! There are a couple kinks that can't be ironed out but nothing too bad really.

And an A8 is still considerably faster than Ivy Bridge. Haswell will only be barely beating it, from the looks of it!

Bump to keep on front page.

Actually, a lot of people users posting "hey which card is better" can get a rough idea with this chart.

Also, you going to add in that new watercooled Radeon (forgot the name)?

I'm slightly tempted to finally go CFX with the new bundle, but the GF said no
