In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 6800 GS are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce 6800 XT.

The GeForce 6800 GS was released less than a year after the GeForce 6800 XT, and so they are likely to have similar driver support for optimizing performance when running the latest games.

The GeForce 6800 XT and the GeForce 6800 GS have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 6800 GS has 20.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6800 XT, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 GS is slightly better than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The GeForce 6800 XT has 12 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 GS has 17. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 GS is 7. The GeForce 6800 GS having 3 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6800 GS delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6800 XT.

The GeForce 6800 GS requires 55 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce 6800 XT.
