Inspired by the philosophy that “wider is better,” NV40 is decked out with up to sixteen pixel pipelines, six vertex units, and gobs of memory bandwidth. Although we normally hate testing with beta software because of the potential for inconsistencies, we used early code almost across the board for the Far Cry tests. Review Sections Review Specs. Sounds great but lacks vision. While the GT and Ultra bask in the glory of sixteen pixel pipes, the vanilla must make do with only a dozen. Unreal Tournament test:

But the fact that the card beats even the high-end ATI Radeon X XT Platinum Edition on the 1,x resolution test, even if it is by a statistically equal 3 percent, speaks extremely well of the eGeForce GT as a less expensive graphics that delivers top-tier performance.
The jury is still out on the usefulness of ATI’s and Nvidia’s newest graphics technologies. Settling on a GeForce or Radeon is just part of the equation, though. A relatively low memory clock speed also gives the significantly less memory bandwidth to work with. We’ve changed, vest promise.
When combined with a lower core clock speed, this pixel pipe deficiency puts the vanilla at a huge fill rate disadvantage. Galaxy S9 brings Samsung two steps forward, one step back. For starters, ForceWare’s nView multimonitor software is better than anything else out there.
Nvidia achieves a smaller form factor and lower power requirements with GeForce GT-based cards by running the graphics chip and memory at a slower clock speed than cards using the GeForce Ultra chip. LG HU85L projector needs but two inches to cast a 90″ picture. Find out more about how we test graphics cards. Read on to find out.
Memory bandwidth is close between 6800yt two cards, though. Once you’ve narrowed the field down to a product family or even a specific GPU, there’s the question of board manufacturers. Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook’s For many, ForceWare’s extra features aren’t going to make or break the GeForce While the GT and Ultra bask in the glory of sixteen pixel pipes, the vanilla must make do with only a dozen.
It offers most of the 3D speed of GeForce Ultra-based cards in a package half the size and proves its mettle against its direct competition by beating or comparing favorably with both of ATI’s high-end cards.
Review summary Editor’s note: The reason for all this chicanery: Review Sections Review Specs. After spending some time with the eVGA e-GeForce GT card, we discovered a money-saving option that offers most of the pros of its more expensive GeForce Ultra-based big brothers, while simultaneously addressing most of the complaints we have about the higher end card, namely its form factor and the demanding power requirements.
Texture units per pixel pipeline.
You also get one year of limited warranty protection. Don’t show this again. This means that you don’t have to worry that you’ll be left behind if the company releases something like a ” GT Pro” three weeks after you buy the e-GeForce GT. In fact, sharing a W power supply with four hard drives, two optical drives, and an assortment of PCI expansion cards, the e-GeForce GT ran without problems in our test system.
Of bes, the series cards are cheaper than GT and Ultra-based products, so you get what you pay for. Thus, it’s important for us to underline that, as is always the case with graphics card testing, today’s winner could be tomorrow’s runner-up, given the constant stream of new driver releases and related software updates.
Memory bus width bits. Which manufacturer’s implementation reigns supreme? The circumstances behind the e-GeForce GT’s most significant performance win in the Far Cry tests are even 6800yt complicated. NVIDIA’s latest ForceWare graphics drivers also come with an integrated pop-up blocker, which should come in handy for die-hard Internet Explorer users who don’t want to switch over to an alternative browser or run a third-party toolbar.
