Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Another argument against SLI-as-upgrade for the GS in particular is that we have no idea how long the card will be in production. You can’t just bench one game barely anyone plays and then declare the issue closed. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment. Sign up now Username Password Remember Me. Certain statements in this press release including, but not limited to, the features, benefits, capabilities and performance of the GeForce GS GPU and NVIDIA SLI technology, anticipated hot games for the holiday season, , and availability and source of availability of the GeForce GS GPU are forward-looking statements that are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause results to be materially different than expectations. This card looks like it will be a great value part for those looking to upgrade anytime soon.

This card looks like it will be a great value part for those looking to upgrade anytime soon. Log in Don’t have an account? The NV42’s smaller transistor count and newer fab process should allow the GS to draw less power and produce less heat than the GT.

And you’re telling me some people are going to buy two and run them together?

Features, pricing, availability, and specifications are subject to change without notice. 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.

That fact may not matter now, but it could well become a source of regret down the road for someone choosing an X XL over a GS today.

It makes sense to spend money on a card that will bring increased performance and more features to a system when a new generation of GPU comes out rather than augmenting an aging card with another of the same type. The memory bandwidth of the GS makes antialiasing possible on most games at x and below. Dell returns to the stock market after six years. The New Colossus Putting shader power where it’s needed most.


It’s nice of Krogoth to fill in for Chuckula over the holidays. Functionally, they’re practically twins. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing In fact, I believe those cards should be available for purchase starting today. 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!

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. 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.

If history is any guide, board makers will offer discounts and “overclocked in the box” clock speeds to make the GS even more appealing than NVIDIA’s stock design. The Holiday Stop Gap: The Company creates innovative, industry-changing products for computing, consumer electronics, and mobile devices. The GeForce GS GPU also has a bit memory interface and a dedicated video processing engine that delivers virtually unmatched high-definition video playback.

There has been a kind of shift in ATI’s schedule lately, so we may see parts trickling out from them over the next few months.

The Radeon X XT is in many ways a very forward-looking design, but it’s not a good value at its current list price. The X is still pretty new, and it looks promising, but the NVIDIA GS has already proven to be a top contender for best performance at the most reasonable price.


This should illustrate how fewer vertex 680gs pixel shaders running at higher clock speeds can make the GS a pretty close match for the GT.

Now that the holidays are over, many new GS owners have settled in and are happily putting their new card to good use with their favorite games.

NVIDIA’s GeForce 6800 GS graphics processor

When comparing multiple cards of the same type to one another, it can be easy to lose sight of how these parts fit into the ranks of graphics fwa that are available by both NVIDIA 6800gs ATI. The NV42, however, has the benefits of youth. Today, we’ll be looking at four different manufacturers’ versions of the GS, and seeing what each has to offer. 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.

We have also included a wide range of higher-priced graphics cards from ATI and NVIDIA in our testing today, in part because they’re competing directly with an intriguing option: 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.
