Nvidia's 6800 GS 3D cards in time for the holidays

Nvidia's 6800 GS 3D cards in time for the holidays

If it's only now hitting you that it's too late to preorder an Xbox 360, you might consider Nvidia's new GeForce 6800 GS as an alternative. A lower-end version of Nvidia's outstanding GeForce 6800 GT, the GeForce 6800 GS offers fewer pixel-processing pipelines but also a more-friendly $250 price tag. You still get support for SLI, Shader Model 3, and high dynamic range lighting, so while it might not run F.E.A.R. at the highest frame rates at the highest resolutions, it should, according to Nvidia, give you at least respectable performance and image quality. Also, keep in mind that Nvidia is not done with product announcements this year, so stay tuned. It's about to get interesting/confusing.
