In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 705 are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 Ultra.

The GeForce GT 705 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, and so the GeForce GT 705 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce 6800 Ultra when running the latest games.

The GeForce GT 705 has 768 MB more video memory than the GeForce 6800 Ultra, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, the overall memory performance is about the same.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra has 22 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GT 705, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is slightly better than the GeForce GT 705.

The GeForce GT 705 has 48 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 Ultra has 22. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce GT 705 is 84 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is 9. The GeForce GT 705 having 75 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 6800 Ultra performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The GeForce GT 705 requires 29 Watts to run and the GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 124 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GT 705. The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 95 Watts more than the GeForce GT 705 to run. The difference is significant enough that the GeForce 6800 Ultra may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GT 705.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 705 is an Entry-Level Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

Architecture
The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

GPU
It equips a GPU codenamed GF119-300-A1 which has 1 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 874MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of DDR3, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 825MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies.

Cooling Solution
The Cooling Solution consists of a Single-Fan.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 29W, it requires at least a 300W PSU and it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
GeForce GT 705 is essentially a fast GeForce GT 610.
Gaming benchmarks put its performance on average with Radeon HD 6450.

System Suggestions
We recommend a modest processor (Intel Celeron) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 705.
The groundbreaking new NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processing units (GPUs) and their revolutionary technologies power worlds where reality and fantasy meet; worlds in which new standards are set for visual realism and quality, performance, and video functionality. The GeForce 6800 GPUs deliver powerful, elegant graphics to drench your senses, immersing you in unparalleled worlds of visual effects for the ultimate PC experience.
