NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GS

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 6800 GS sales 7 November 2005 at a recommended price of 249 USD. This is a Curie architecture desktop card based on 130 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.3 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 32.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. An additional 1 6-pin power connectors are required.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.97 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA TITAN Xp.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
