NVIDIA GeForce 6800 XT

NVIDIA GeForce 6800 XT Image
The GeForce 6800 XT was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in September 2005. Built on the 110 nm process, and based on the NV42 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The NV42 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 150 mm² and 198 million transistors. It features 12 pixel shaders and 5 vertex shaders, 12 texture mapping units and 12 ROPs. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). NVIDIA has placed 256 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 450 MHz, memory is running at 600 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 XT for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1024x768.
Being a single-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 XT draws power from 1x Molex power connectors, with power draw not exactly known. Display outputs include: 1x DVI, 1x VGA, 1x S-Video. GeForce 6800 XT is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP 8x interface.
