6800 GT vs 6800 XT

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Monarch Computer has XfX 6800 XT on sale this weekend for $100 after rebate. Would it be better for me to purchase a second 6800GT or would two 6800 XT's be better at that price? Is the performance of the XT much better then the GT?

a single 6800GT is much better then a single 6800XT but two 6800XT will take down the 6800GT with no prob...

No, the XT has 8 pipes/4 shaders. Vanilla has 12/5. GT/Ultra has 16/6. But as always there is a chance to unlocking them on the XT's.

even if u unlock the XT's its hard to get the same clock speeds plus its only ddr not gddr3. Trust me i have an XT. Go with another GT they are much better u'll be alot happier.

I cannot find a 6800 GT for sale anymore from XfX. I can find a 6800 GS. Will this work?

its nice to mach the same cards though... it would drive me nuts being different cards... OCD! google "xfx 6800gt" and see what you find... i think people should try to find answeres more on their own before they come here and ask such simple questions....
