“Today, we’ll be looking at four different manufacturers’ versions of the 6800 GS, and seeing what each has to offer. The cards that we have are from Leadtek, PNY Technologies, EverTop, and EVGA. We’ve already talked about how the 6800 GS compares to the current NVIDIA lineup, but we’ll offer a recap and hopefully provide a good overview of how this and other available graphics cards rank in terms of performance in the next section. When comparing multiple cards of the same type to one another, it can be easy to lose sight of how these parts fit into the ranks of graphics cards that are available by both NVIDIA and ATI. One of our goals in this review is to shed some light on the “big picture” of graphics card performance in general, and in particular, how the 6800 GS fits into it.”

The newly released 6800GS is one of the best bangs for your buck in the current graphics market, whether you want the AGP or the PCI-e version. AnandTech has grabbed cards from 4 of the current manufacturers, to see how they work out of the box, and what kind of an overclock to expect.
