nVidia Makes GF 6 Series Official

nVidia introduced today the GeForce 6800 models of graphics processing units (GPUs) for high-performance desktop computers. The GeForce 6 Series, which includes the flagship GeForce 6800 Ultra and GeForce 6800, is designed to deliver:

-Industry-leading 3D performance- new superscalar 16-pipe architecture delivers more than twice that of current industry leading NVIDIA GPUs
- New features, including Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 feature set - for ultra-realistic cinematic effects
- Unprecedented on-chip video processing engine - enabling high-definition video and DVD playback

As DOOM 3 development winds to a close, my work has turned to development of the next generation rendering technology. The NV40 is my platform of choice due to its support of very long fragment programs, generalized floating point blending and filtering, and the extremely high performance, said John Carmack, president and technical director of id Software

The innovative 3D graphics architecture of the GeForce 6800 GPUs introduces many key new technologies that will drive the image quality and performance in 3D gaming, including:

- Fast Graphics Performance: With a revolutionary new 16 pipeline superscalar architecture and the world's fastest GDDR3 memory, GeForce 6800 GPUs offer a staggering amount of graphics horsepower. Gaming performance is super charged with eight times the floating-point shader power, four times the shadow processing power and double the vertex processing power over last generation's award winning GeForce FX architecture.
- New Feature Set: Built with full Microsoft DirectX 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 support, the GeForce 6 Series was built to deliver ultra-realistic next-generation DirectX 9 titles. The GeForce 6800 GPUs give developer's unlimited programmability, 32-bit shader precision, displacement mapping, geometry instancing and other features unique to the GeForce 6 Series. In addition, this new GPU delivers full floating point support throughout the entire pipeline, GeForce 6800 GPUs vastly improve the quality of images in motion with floating point filtering. The new rotated-grid antialiasing feature removes jagged edges for incredible image quality and a new 16x anisotropic filtering mode adds clarity to textures.

- World's first on-chip video processor: GeForce 6800 GPUs have a programmable video processing engine that delivers stunning high-definition video playback. Featuring support for MPEG encode and decode, as well as support for Windows Media Video 9 (WMV9), the GeForce 6800 delivers an amazing video experience when used with the Microsoft Windows Media Center Edition operating system. The GeForce 6800 also enables high-quality video playback on any window size, and has an integrated TV-encoder for direct-to-TV playback.

GeForce 6800 GPUs benefit from the renowned compatibility and reliability of the NVIDIA ForceWare software featuring the NVIDIA Unified Driver Architecture (UDA). In addition NVIDIA ForceWare delivers industry-leading software features such as custom game profiles, HDTV output, overclocking, multi-display support, and much more.

The first GPUs based on the NVIDIA GeForce 6 Series, the GeForce 6800 Ultra and GeForce 6800 models, are manufactured using IBM's high-volume 0.13-micron process technology and are currently shipping to leading add-in-card partners, OEMs, system builders, and game developers.

Retail graphics boards based on the GeForce 6800 models are slated for release in the next 45 days.

the '' IM A MORON I BUY ATI'' guy is really a moron. You really are an ASS since you had to install the catalyst drivers 20 times to play Far Cry. I own a 9800 PRO and never had such a problem - neither did anyone else as far as what I know. You f**king idiot. A! Something else, You are such a pussy that you are even afraid to write your real name. Get a life you asshole.

if anyone wants custom made graphics drivers for both Nvidia and ATi Graphics cards then go to [url removed] drivers on this site fix bugs for most games and are generally more stable than the officiall drivers realeased by the companys.Personally, I would go with ATi... now i know thier drivers are very unstable... but the actuall Praphical power and speed n performance has to go to ATi....If some1 out there Created a GFX Card with Ati's performance and Nvidias Stability... they would outsell both nvidia and ati put together! and that would be the best gfx card ever! and i would certainly buy one!But as i say... go to that web site... its not gaurenteed to solve every problem there is but its know to help and improve performance and stability.InDeathWeFall :: Syther ([url removed]

"In the near future, we are pretty sure that Nvidia is going to win the graphics crown back from ATI.""Nvidia will win the race hands down. Nvidia will be unchallenged in the power race."IF PEOPLE - read the ATi fanboyz who bothered to flame us - thought we were overconfident in this article, estimating the huge performance jump Nvidia were going to make when introducing its sixteen pipeline NV40, then they're going to have to think again.Numerous sources have confirmed that a Futuremark 3DMark 2003 score of12,535 has apparently been demonstrated by Nvidia on its pre-production engineering samples.So, if what we're hearing about Nvidia's NV40 is true, then its sixth generation desktop 3D graphics accelerator is shaping up to be mighty.However, in light of today's news, we'll mention that that same source said that the ATI R420 was slower.Sources close to ATI have said that a score of 10,000 3DMarks for ATi R420 "would be a dream", indicating that R420 Revision: CeBIT 2K4 wasn't pulling this level of numbers.-The Inquirer-

ATI may think there the best??? but in 3Dmark the fx5950 beat the "9800XT" so b4 u ATI shitheads bag the nvdia remember this........my "nivdia Ti4800SE(slow edition) pulls more frames in any game i play than the 9600XT so in other word ATI is shit

nVidia Makes GF 6 Series Official

ATIlicks balls lol stupid f**k... u ALWAYS have to look at ingame FPS!!! and u can see that radeon 9800 XT rules in every game some games even with 20 FPS lead!!! the GF4 Ti series is good but nowadays we are talking about radeon 9800 XT and geforce fx 5950 ultra...

nVidia Makes GF 6 Series Official

hey in the world of gaming FPS rules all..i mean u can have perfect graphics but will u b able play as good with only 15FPS?? i think not. and to saying i always look at in game FPS what about the scores in 3dmark??u ppl really need to read all the posts b4 commenting

nVidia Makes GF 6 Series Official

tzzz ATIlicks balls. you are a stupid motherf**king asshole. Go buy your huge NVIDIA graphic cards using up 2 slots. and when you move your pc they break. you motherf**k don't know what you are talking about. benchmarks dont say which card ist the best, because most benchmarks are made for a favor of either company ati or nvidia. so go f**k your dog.

nVidia Makes GF 6 Series Official

ati kicks nvidia's small little assi had a fx 5200 128mb i went out and got a fx 5600 xt 256mb and it was just as CRAP as the 5200 eveby had slower clock speed GAY got a ATI 9600 pro 128mb and it shit on the other cards so eat that nvida lovers ..btw i whent to you house and f**ked you dog, then you mum, theni made you dog f**k your mumm , hehehehhehe

nVidia Makes GF 6 Series Official

I doubt it will suck they have to regain the gaming crown or they are out of business, i can say that they will probably kick ati's ass this time unless ati counter's them quicky.Now i have a hard decision i was going for a 9800 pro soon from my geforce 4 but if nvidia is coming back than i dont know who to choose..

It doesnt suck, the test reports are in, just check out Tom's Hardware and Extreme Tech, they show that nVidia was not B.S.ing this time. They came out with a quality product that delivers the speed that gamers crave. So check out the tests yourself, these are credable testing sites to many, and they are just blown away, in most cases the PROTOTYPE's of the 6800 ultra double the performance of the 9800XT and the 5950 Ultra. nVidia has really done it this time with a quality product. Increased I.Q. and twice the performance? Sounds fantastic to me!

ati will be triumphant.firstly they actually have 12/16 pipelines depending on the model, not 8 that can act like 16 under certain conditions.secondly looking at the comparisons between the ati 12 pipeline benchmark and the nvidia benchmark the increase in pipelines for ati will definetly put them in frontthirdly because i said soand one last point john (nvidia lover) carmack can eat them words once ati prove that they are the powerhouse for doom 3, which will probably happen, however opengl has always favoured nvidia, but maybe ati have sorted this somehow and will own nvidia in everything.only time shall tell

nVidia Makes GF 6 Series Official

Neh, I will wait till PCI express is implimented... Then get the newest/best video card...The two competitors here are soo close in performance, it wont matter unless you OC the hell out of it... I don't plan on shortening my hardwares life for more frames...I also don't see myself buying ATI hardware anytime then either... They need to figure out how to make a clean driver that doesnt drive you to remove the old driver to get the new driver, or vice versa, let alone have the old driver have better/more stable compatability with a larger library of games versus a newer driver...

nVidia Makes GF 6 Series Official

im really sick of people cussing ati drivers, i have never had any problem with any of the shit load of games i have played, i would even go as far as to say if you a muppet who knows nothing about computers get nvidia if you know what you are doing and know how to troubleshoot simple problems get ati :P
