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.
The RADEON X800 XL is at first about 8-9% faster than the GeForce 6800 GS, but the gap is narrowing in higher resolution. The performance gain from overclocking the GeForce 6800 GS is near 20%. We don’t publish the “eye candy” results because the game does not support FSAA.
The GeForce 6800 GS is much better than the GeForce 6800 GT in this game, especially in higher resolutions. The newer card enjoys a 30% advantage over the older one in the “pure speed” mode and a 20% advantage in the “eye candy” mode. The RADEON X800 XL performs passably well, but is slower than the GeForce 6800 GS, while the RADEON X1600 XL fails again, sometimes even being behind the GeForce 6800.
