6800GS or 7600GT - Page 3

post #21 of 30
I'm on AGP too... getting the ASRock DualSATA to spread out the cost of switching to PCIe.

the 128-bit may be a bit slow, but the rest of the card makes up for it by a decent amount, too bad 7600GTs came out a week before i got my 6800GS

and it has all the 7 series features which makes it even better

If you compare specs stock for stock with the 6800GS you see the 7600GT is superior and only falls short in the memory bandwidth (due to its 128bit interface vs the GS's 256bit. This card can do 6960 shader operations a second, has a 4640 mpixels/s fillrate, 6960 mtexels/s texture fillrate, and can calculate 725 mvertices/s with 24gb of memory bandwidth. Compare those numbers to a stock GS: 5100 shader opertations/s, 3400 mpixels/s fillrate, 5100 mtexels/s texture fillrate, 637 mvertices/s with 32gb of memory bandwidth. To match this 7600GT you need to take a 6800GS to 580mhz on the core, something you really cant do stable on stock cooling and may even need a volt mod to accomplish. Pair that with higher cost (and added cooling), along with higher temps, longer card, and larger power requirements, 7600GT is a great card

Hey, just new to the board, but this thread caught my eye and sorta addresses the same thing I wanted to ask.

But what I wanted to know is that I'm considering an XFX 6800XT or an XFX 7600GS, after unlocking the pipes on the 6800XT (hoping that they would), would the better buy be the 6800XT or the 7600GS? The price difference is litteraly the same... Thoughts?

Keep in mind that I'm upgrading from a very old Voodoo4 and either one would certainly appease my needs for the time being. I'm mainly looking at bang for the buck.

To the best of my knowledge there is no card called the 7600gs so I assume you are talking about a 7800gs and that would indeed be much better than a 6800xt in any form.

Here is the 7600gs. The 7600gs would be better than the 6800xt because the XT versions are the lowest end cards of that class. And even if you do manage to unlock all pipes, it still won't have up-to-date technology features like Ultrashadow 3, etc. Get the 7600gs.

Thanks for the input Wudaddy. After doing some more research between the 2 I ended up deciding on getting the 7600GS. Time to save some funds!

I used to have a xfx 6800gs, now i'm getting a xfx 7600gt, from the reviews i've read it suppose to be ~10 fps faster, i'll confirm when i get my system.
