As almost all reviews have shown, the increased clocks make up for it. The memory bandwidth is the same, and the effective fillrate is the almost the same due to the increased core clock, so there's absolutely no reason for this card to perform any lower than the GT (maybe ~0-5% due to the slightly reduced fillrate). And it doesn't disappoint.
At $199, this card is simply *beautiful*
Edit: My bad. The texel fillrate is comparable to the GT, but the pixel fillrate is a lot less due to the 8 ROPs (as opposed to the GT's 16). 16 ROPs was definitely overkill on the GT, but 8 on the GS might be a little less.
