The GS is quite likely cheaper to manufacture, as well. You may be wondering: The GS doesn’t quite match up with the GT in terms of pixel fill rate, but that number isn’t terribly important in today’s games, which require increasing amounts of shading and texturing power per pixel.
We’ve also included a range of cards because it was time for an update since we did our last big graphics comparison in our Radeon X series review. Of course, these numbers won’t produce exactly comparable performance, especially across different generations and brands of GPU architectures, but they’re still fairly relevant.
The truth is that the GeForce GS is not a major new GPU revision in any sense of the word, though, and that the GT that it ostensibly replaces was most definitely in need of replacement.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing Because the two chips are manufactured using different fab processes that rely on different libraries, NVIDIA estimates their transistor counts differently.
This pipe card started life as a foil to the GeForce GT, so I suppose it’s fitting that it should now face off against the GS.
We aim to help you answer that question by flooding you with benchmark results until your head swims and you cry out for sweet mercy. And you’re telling me some people are going to buy two and run them together?
GeForce GS Can Run PC Game System Requirements
If you’re like me, you may be a little bit surprised to see NVIDIA cranking out a brand-new GeForce 6-series video card as we head 680gs the holiday buying season, given that the GeForce 7 series has been around gevorce a while in several incarnations. The NV42, however, has the benefits of youth.
ATI has blessed the X XT with twelve pixel shaders and a stratospheric MHz clock speed, though, so perhaps it’s not completely out of its league. Voldenuit It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
Fortunately, as technology progresses, computer power does get cheaper over time, and that’s certainly true in graphics. NV40 silicon is also incapable of accelerating WMV video decoding.
Customize The Tech Report We’ve tested a number of the latest games, including F. Both major players have released new drivers since then, claiming big performance gains, and several excellent new games have arrived, as well.
NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS
No Interruptions Day Shortbread. The GS offers slightly more vertex processing power, slightly less pixel shading and texturing power, and exactly the same amount of memory bandwidth as the GeForce GT. You’ll find an NV41 chip lurking under the garishly decorated heatsink of any recent GeForce no extended moniker edition card with a PCI Express interface.
Everything about it, from its teensy GPU die size to its four texture units, four render back ends, and its bit memory interface screams “cheaper! I’d better sit down for moment.
GeForce 6800 GS
Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! This should illustrate how fewer vertex and pixel shaders running at higher clock speeds can make the GS a pretty close 6800ts for the GT.
In fact, because I’m still trying to shed those recurring math-class nightmares that plague any liberal arts major, I’m going to hit you with a fancy table laying out those specifications in some detail. It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays.
Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Does that combination of price and performance make the GeForce GS worthy of your consideration?
Thus, the NV41 purportedly has million transistors, while the NV42 has million transistors, although the two chips “are fundamentally the same architecture,” according to NVIDIA.
