NVIDIA has released high-performance high-margin GeForce 7800 GT and GTX graphics processors which offer advanced functionality and performance sufficient for majority of games. But there are people who would not like to pay $449 or $599 per graphics card and there is Holiday season coming, when all the users go on and spend their money. NVIDIA introduced its GeForce 6800 GS product which costs $249 and frequently manages to leave behind the GeForce 6800 GT in order to offer probably the best “bang for the buck” in 2005.
Half-Life 2 is not a very hard game by today’s standards and all the participating graphics cards, save for the GeForce 6800 and the RADEON X1600 XT, give you no less than 60fps even in 1600x1200 with enabled 4x FSAA and 16x AF. There is almost no difference between the GeForce 6800 GS and GeForce 6800 GT, but both cards are slower than the RADEON X800 XL in the “eye candy” mode.
This time the RADEON X800 XL is on top in the “pure speed” mode already, and only the overclocked GeForce 6800 GS can compete with it at the “eye candy” settings.
