GPU price/performance charts?

Postposted on Thu May 02, 2013 12:58 am

Hey all,

Is there a sticky or permanent link on here somewhere that has the latest GPU price/performance charts? I know I can find them at the end of recent gpu reviews, but is there a more convenient location? I found a sticky in the graphics forum but it seemed quite dated. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=54603

They're not much use outside of the scope of the GPU reviews because older cards tend to change in price so much from their launch prices that their position in the graph/chart isn't accurate or relevant anymore.

I agree something like Anand's Bench for price/performance would be handy but it'd require quite some work to keep updated.

I have the data that danny e. sent me quite a while but I honestly thought I'd have more time to update it (working for TR and all...) and never got a chance to really grab it.

I suppose a sticky linking to TR's own value graphs, always present at the end of reviews, would suffice for most.

Thanks for providing the link, but comparing 3DMarks/price is just about as innacurate as anything can ever be :(

Yeah, this.
Though I enjoy reading each GPU review and keeping all the price/performance figures in my head anyway. I have to do that to some extent because I don't see the same pricing trends here that you guys have in the US.
