NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT


NVIDIA started GeForce 6800 GT sales 14 April 2004. This is Curie architecture desktop card based on 110 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 AGP 8x interface. 1x molex power connector is required, and power consumption is at 67 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.89 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
