    Yeah.

    Im buying it.

    And well.
    This XXX Edition comes already OCed and performs better than the 6800GT without OC.

    Many people has scored 16 or 17k in 3dmark 03 with a 6800GS which is really impressive.

    How many people have scored 16 or 17k in 3dmark with a 6800GT?

    Basically the 6800GS is a heavily modified 6800GT card and all the stuff that was wrong with the GT they corrected it with the GS plus they built it on lower nm core. Another fact that it was 12pipes was because NV was scared that the card will be very powerfull and poeple would buy it instead the upcoming 7600 series. Its all basic marketing crap.

    1) Are you sure nVidia are gonna make the 7600 series??! :

    2) "all the stuff wrong with the GT" you say ...no cards perfect (bar the GTX7800) so stating thats just story telling dude! :argue:

    Hmm that link shows the RAMDAC at 400MHz not the memory, im pretty sure the memory speed wont be that low.

    Yes, without the GDDR3, it is just a regular 6800 NU, right?

    Yeah pretty much, bar the core speed/process. The article is gone now from the looks of it too.

    Id very surprised if the AGP version of the GS was significantly different from the PCIe version in terms of performance. Really does depend on how they intend to do it, afaik the 6800 Go (mobile cores used on the GS) cores will likely need the HSI chip to bridge them to AGP and the PCB will obviously be different due to that. When we do see the AGP version tho, that might be the gateway to a high end 7800 series card on AGP. We can hope eh? :)

    Hmm true i used to get confused between those two RAM and RAMDAC=Short for Random Access Memory Digital-to-Analog Converter, a single chip on video adapter cards. The RAMDAC's role is to convert digitally encoded images into analog signals that can be displayed by a monitor.

    Wow hope that the AGP version would be as good or even better then the PCI-e (eg.Unlockable pipelines and so on). I am still hoping that it will be la launched before Christmas!! :dave:

    It's not all marketing crap.

    It depends on where you are in terms of hardware and how knowledgeable you are about your own hardware and what they are offering as well.

    For example, for someone like myself, I wouldn't run out and buy a 6800GS AGP because I have an equivalent card (more or less; some areas better, some worse).

    However, someone who has a Ti4600, or an FX card would definitely benefit more from an upgrade like this if they are still on AGP.

    Therefore, it isn't market "BS" because the second person is who the GS is designed specifically for. What is wrong with that? It's all relative...

    can you unlcok pipelines on the pci-e version? if not can you unlock pipes on any pci-e card?

    LOL Do you guys not understand what FILL RATE is? Do you not understand that you cannot clock a GT as high because the fabrication process is 130nm? What goes through your PLAIN AND SIMPLE minds when you say something stupid like GT FTW, stuff like this just makes me laugh, and so do my benchmark scores verse your GT's.

    Also scouting there is a 7800GS (16 pipes) in the works, or at least Nvidia had released reference cards for them, but that might be shot down due to direct competetion with the rest of the 7 series (7600) which is supposidly to be released in April. And if the what the inquirer speculates is true the 78gs will only come out on AGP (even though the ref cards where pci express).

    Dunno about GT?

    Hey guy's I recently Blanked, or something the bios chip on my,
    AGP MSI NX6800, now i'm left with a lump that won't let my pc boot, any suggestions?,

    Anyhoo I was forced to buy another card and plumped for the GS, in early December, the difference in performance was phenominal!, bearing in mind that on the MSI card I had all the pipelines open, which made a difference, but I lost out in stability and had to disable AGP FW,

    The GS will clock to around 535/40gpu and 1.25/30mem with added breezage, all in all the best sub £200 card I ever bought!:)
