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.
Performance in Simulators
Colin McRae Rally 2005
This car simulator prefers ATI RADEON X850 and X800 graphics cards as they are more efficient at executing simple pixel shaders. The RADEON X800 XL is unrivalled in low resolutions, but it is then overtaken by the GeForce 6800 GS in higher ones. In the latter case the gap between the two graphics cards is huge – about 40% even when the GeForce 6800 GS works at its default frequencies. So, it seems this game values GPU frequency more than some extra pixel pipelines.
