Geforc 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. Dell returns to the stock market after six years.

The GS is quite likely cheaper to manufacture, as well. You may be wondering: Graphics Previous page Next page. Six-hundred dollar video cards?

GeForce GS: The New Price/Performance King? – ExtremeTech

Fortunately, as technology progresses, computer power does get cheaper over time, and that’s certainly true in graphics. R, Serious Sam 2, and Half Life 2: I’d better sit down for moment. We aim to help you answer that question by flooding you with benchmark results until your head swims and 6800gx cry out for sweet mercy.

Functionally, they’re practically twins.

Because the two chips are manufactured using different fab processes that rely on different libraries, NVIDIA estimates their transistor counts differently.

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

No Interruptions Day Shortbread. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! The board design looks very similar to other GeForce 6-series cards, especially the GeForce cards based on the NV Does that combination of price and gegorce make the GeForce GS worthy of your consideration?

PassMark – GeForce GS – Price performance comparison

We’ve tested a number of the latest games, including F. We shall see about that.

NV40 silicon is also incapable of accelerating WMV video decoding. Both major players have released new drivers since then, claiming big performance gains, and several excellent new games have arrived, as well. The GS offers slightly more vertex processing power, slightly less pixel shading and texturing power, and exactly the same geforxe of memory bandwidth as the GeForce GT.

This should gefoorce how fewer vertex and pixel shaders running at higher clock speeds can make the GS a pretty close match 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.

Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing 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. 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.

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. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. Everything about it, from its teensy GPU die size to its four texture units, four render 66800gs ends, and its bit memory interface screams “cheaper!

Although the GS has fewer pixel shader pipes, it’s practically a dead ringer for the GT when it comes to key specifications like texel fill rate, thanks to its MHz core clock speed. Customize The Tech Report
