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.
Serious Sam 2
The GeForce 6800 GS is everywhere ahead of the GeForce 6800 GT, especially in low resolutions with enabled full-screen antialiasing. Well, the new graphics card just has no rivals in this game: the RADEON X1600 XT is impeded by its four TMUs and the RADEON X800 XL doesn’t support Shader Model 3.0. ATI’s graphics cards that take part in this test do not allow you to play comfortably even in 1024x768 resolution, while the GeForce 6800 GS gives you enough speed even in 1280x1024 or in anti-aliased 1024x768. Note that none of the cards has a speed reserve here – the min frame rate is not higher than 23fps.
