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 results of the third test are similar to those of the second one since they are analogous from the technical point of view. The geometry of the third test is just somewhat more complex.
The GeForce 6800 GS is again faster than its predecessor in the fourth and the most difficult test. It can even keep up with the RADEON X800 XL in the “eye candy” mode which is an achievement: the GeForce 6800 GT used to be slower than the ATI solution here. And this is the only test where the RADEON X1600 XT shows good results. At least, it is not too far behind the GeForce 6800 GT in the “pure speed” mode.
So, the GeForce 6800 GS has overall the same performance as the GeForce 6800 GT in 3DMark03 and is even better in the “eye candy” mode, at least in the first and fourth tests, i.e. the simplest and the most complex ones.
