Yeah for counterstrike source it will be fine.

it has 32 GB/s memory bandwith and its actually just a tad bit slower than the 6800 gt because the 6800 gt has 16 pixel pipelines and the 6800gs has 12 pixel pipelines.

The 6800GS performance is higher than the GT and the GS being cheaper usually is great. It also has been optimised for SLI and two of them will beat a 7800 by a fair margin so thats quite impressive.

Yeah, I saw benchmark tests and the 6800gs had a little bit higher fps than the 6800 gt.


The only difference is that the gs has 12 pipelines but more core clock mhz which is 425 stock. A stock gt has 350 mhz core clock and 16 pipelines.


Card A 425Mhz (425Million cycles/s) * 12 Pixel Pipelines = 5.1 Billion pixels rendered per second. (GS)

Card B 350Mhz (350Million cycles/s) * 16 Pixel Pipelines = 5.6 Billion pixels rendered per second. (GT)

The gs is still the better deal and costs less.

Pipelines are going to be made an obsolete term in six months or so when the unified core tech comes out in the next gens of cards.
