This is the sixth generation of Geforce graphic processing unit. It caters to the high performance gaming market. The scalable link interface (SLI) allows the user to connect two geforce cards. It's an improvement from its predecessors and uses high dynamic range imaging which is a technique that allows a greater dynamic range of luminance between light and dark areas of a scene. It delivers Shader Model 3.0 (SM3) capability. SM3 provides standard FP32 (32-bit floating-point) precision, dynamic branching, increased efficiency and longer shader lengths. It has a 16 pixel pipeline, is 2.5 times faster than its predecessors, fabricated on the same 130 nanometer process node and it consumed less power. It is designed for the accelerated graphics port (AGP) which is a high speed point to point channel. This card can is recommended for pro gamers and graphic designers.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
NVIDIA Ge force 6800 LE takes advantage of the additional bandwidth offered by PCIe. It uses up to 8x more shading performance compared to the previous generation. It provides full MPEG-2 encoding and decoding at GPU level and has advanced adaptive de interlacing. Its DDR and GDDR-3 memory are on a 256 bit wide memory interface. The Ultra shadow II technology ensures it stays ahead of the pack making it three to four times faster. It uses high precision dynamic range technology, IntelliSample 4.0 Technology - 16x Anisotropic Filtering, Rotating Grid Antialiasing and Transparency Antialiasing. It has open GL 2.0 optimizations and support with digital vibrance control at 3.0. It consists of dual 400¬†MHz RAMDACs which support QXGA displays up to 2048x1536 @ 85¬†Hz. It has low MSRP because it has fewer pipelines and a smaller process (110 vs. 130¬†nm). It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and NVIDIA GeForce 6800 LE errors before installing any driver updates.
