Lightbulb Best Value GPUs

Hey everybody (and Linus hopefuly!)

I just thought it share this graph with you guys. It shows how much "bang-per-buck" you get. This graph includes all Nvidia's DX11 GPUs.

Here it is:

The top GPUs are the most expensive, the bottom ones are the cheapest. The ones who are closer to the right side has a better Performance / $$$.

^ also wondering that... why couldn't you just do it by percentages so it can be clearly read, your graph makes no sense at all.
Also, from what i can see from the graph your numbers are way off.

I almost agree with it, I think the 460 is marginally better price/perf then a 550Ti.

GTX560Ti
If i'm not wrong he's refering to a video in NCIX Tech Tips channel when Linus used CRYSIS 2,using 3 cards,the GT430 (or the GT210 i belive) the GTX560Ti and the GTX580,of course u know who's the winner (if u don't take a look upstairs)
So i think he's trying to complete what Linus done and did this based on CRYSIS 2 Benchmark

GTX460 1gb 338 shader model most certainly should pwn that chart, it is actually quite cheap and has alot of performance for its current price.

Any chance you could post what performance benchmarks and prices you used for this chart?

Default Based on...

I based the performance on this chart:
http://www.geforce.com/Active/en_US/...red/lineup.png

And then divided the score with the price of the GPU.

What? 3Dmark has no real world results, your graph is basically just for benchmarks and moot for just about everything else.
