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 First-Person 3D Shooters
The GeForce 6800 GS is generally as fast as the GeForce 6800 GT (maybe a little slower in high resolutions without FSAA since the new product’s fill rate is lower). The RADEON X1600 XT is slower than the GeForce 6800 GS in almost every resolution, being limited in speed by its four TMUs. The overclocking gain we managed to get from our GeForce 6800 GS is proportional to the impressive frequency gain and amounts to 30% in some cases.
