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

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

The GeForce 6800 Ultra 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 Ultra has 3.2 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce 6800 GS, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is marginally better than the GeForce 6800 GS.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra has 22 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 GS has 17. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 Ultra is 9 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 GS is 7. The GeForce 6800 Ultra having 2 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GeForce 6800 Ultra delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6800 GS.

The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 124 Watts to run and the GeForce 6800 GS requires 55 Watts. The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires 69 Watts more than the GeForce 6800 GS to run.
