  Four types of CLIC prototype TW accelerator structures were high-gradient tested at Nextef, KEK, up to 100 MV/m level and the fifth is under test now. The ramping speed of each processing and the resultant breakdown rate were compared among them. From this comparison, it was found that the ramping speed of the structures with opening ports for HOM damping with magnetic coupling became slow and the resultant breakdown rate became high. It was also found that that with lower surface magnetic field showed faster ramping in processing and lower breakdown rate. This indicates the role of the magnetic field on vacuum breakdowns in copper structure at the region of several tens to 100 MV/m. In this paper, we review the processing stage and the high gradient performance of these structures trying to discuss the relevant parameters, surface electric field, surface magnetic field and other parameters such as Sc, “complex pointing vector”, to the performance difference.
