Default Re: Whats the difference between the 6800GT and the new 6800GS?

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.
So wait, the GS is built on a G7x core? The Rage3D article linked somewhere else hinted that it was a modified 6800GT/U core.
