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.
Unreal Tournament 2004
1600x1200 resolution of the “pure speed” mode gives us some useful info – the RADEON X1600 XT is clearly on the losing side there. The game is not as complex as to load fully 16 pixel pipelines. It is quite satisfied with 12, but is sensitive to the clock rate. As a result, the GeForce 6800 GS surpasses the GeForce 6800 GT in the “eye candy” mode.
The new card shows its best qualities on the Metallurgy map: it delivers a frame rate of 80fps and higher even in 1600x1200 with enabled FSAA and anisotropic filtering.
