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!

Today, we’ll be looking at four different manufacturers’ versions of the GS, and seeing what each has to offer. One of our goals in this review is to shed some light on the “big picture” of graphics card performance in general, and in particular, how the GS fits into it. 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 6800ggs 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.

LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. Introduction NVIDIA’s GS has been available for over two months now, and it seems to fra doing a nice job of providing users with quality performance. Checking in on Intel’s Core iC for gaming in The chip, the myth, the legend. No Interruptions Day Shortbread.


Both major players have released new drivers since 68800gs, claiming big performance gains, and several excellent new games have arrived, as well.

Six-hundred dollar video cards? We’ve already talked about how the GS compares to the current NVIDIA lineup, but we’ll offer a recap and hopefully provide a good overview of how this and other available graphics cards rank in terms of performance in the next section.

Dell returns to the stock market after six years. I don’t advocate reaching into a higher price bracket often, but this is one case where it may make some sense. We also generally do not recommend SLI as an upgrade option. NV40 silicon is also incapable of accelerating WMV video decoding. Post Your Comment Please log in or fda up to comment.

The NVIDIA GS Closer Look: EVGA, Leadtek, PNY, and Evertop

The board design looks very similar to other GeForce 6-series cards, especially the GeForce cards based on the NV 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. We shall see about that. 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 Dea.


Does that combination of price and performance make the GeForce GS worthy of your consideration? We’ve tested a number of the latest games, including F.

Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition untethers Radeon gaming High-quality gaming comes to low-power devices. 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 biggest knock on the GeForce GS, in my book, comes from another source. 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. 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.

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.
