Specs: Windows XP, 3.2HT / 2ghz
Hi all,

I have the above stated cards and planning to sell one of the less powerful and keep the other. Both uses 256MB GDDR3 and are overclocked.

6800GT - 414MHz / 1132MHz
6800GS - 470MHz / 1442MHz

Can anyone tell me which is the better card?

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried benchmarking them & comparing the results?

You don't say if they're AGP or PCIe but the main difference between the cards is the PixelPipelines/Pixel Shaders/Vertex Pipes. The GT has 16/16/6, the GS has 12/12/5. Plus the GS *should* have an updated GPU. I believe the PCIe version uses the NV42 but the GT PCIe & both AGP versions use the NV40.

Being that the GS is overclocked higher, it *probably* performs a little better than the GT, even though it's stripped down in the pipes/shader dept. But being that they're older cards that only support up to DX9, they're not worth all that much these days. How much were you hoping to get for it? Have a look this GT 220 for just $35 after rebate:


If you can get a card for $35 with those kinda specs, what does that tell you about your cards?

It's both AGP interface and i juz did a benchmark on my system (Pentiun D 2.8GHZ clocked @ 3.09GHz, 2 x 1 GB Kingston DDR400) and got the following result.


3DMark06 : 2969
SM2.0 : 1198
SM3.0 : 1081
CPU : 1562



3DMark06 : 2912
SM2.0 : 1165
SM3.0 : 1065
CPU : 1561

However, did make some amendments on the 6800GS (480MHz / 1411MHz) as there're tearing image when running benchmark with it's original overclocked setting stated on my first posting above.

Guess i shall keep the 6800GT and sell off 6800GS for $40 local currency. (Approx. USD27.00)

Thanks all.

Owned both, the GS is slower, hands down.

anyways, a 6800GT is equal to a 7600(gt?), which is equal to an 8500gt, which is about equal to a 9400gt, etc., in terms of speed
