The 6800GS has 12 Pixel pipelines.

Indeed and the GT runs at 350MHz and the GS at 425MHz...

Aha... so the GT is still going to be faster, especially if you overclock it a little?

Why not review specs graph on the first page of MikeC's preview :)

Well the GT can't reach the 500-520 core overclocks the GS does.;)
The GS is the better buy IMO.

The GT is 130nm , the GS is 110nm .. hence the higher core clocks ;)

And lets not forget that PureVideo works "properly" on the GS...

(Still fuming over that....)

The GS is only behind the GT by mere decimals of FPS on most tests, sometimes it even has better FPS. The GS is built on a 7800 reference PCB with a 6800GT cooler, except the GPU heatsink is solid copper, which every review site has agreed, allows the GPU to overclock wonderfully with the stock cooler. It's a 12pp/5vp vs. the GT's 16pp/6vp, but the higher clock speeds more than make up for it, and with the potential overclocking the GS outdoes the GT easily. It's built on a 110nm process vs. the GT's 130nm, hence the higher clocks on the GS. Both use the same ram if I'm not mistaken...

All in all, the GS is a much better buy than the GT.
