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

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

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

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

The GeForce 6800 GT Leadtek Edition has 22 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 6800 XT has 12. However, the actual shader performance of the 6800 GT is 8 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 6800 XT is 4. The 6800 GT having 4 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the 6800 GT delivers a slightly smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce 6800 XT.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 6800 GT Leadtek Edition is a Special Edition of the GeForce 6800 GT. See the standard version for more information about it.
The only difference is the output which is now Two DVI instead of VGA and one DVI.
Therefore, the performance is exactly like the standard version and so most games will require reduced settings, due to the limited memory size and weak power processing, considering today's standards and needs.
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.
