NVIDIA’s bottom-line version of the GeForce 6800 graphics processor that was originally said to be intended for system builders and OEMs is expected to reach retail markets shortly. Leadtek, an NVIDIA’s major add-in-card partner, has already unveiled its GeForce 6800 LE graphics cards for Japanese customers.
The NVIDIA GeForce 6800-series of chips unveiled in mid-April are the company’s flagship products in the GeForce 6-series of graphics processors. The GeForce 6-series of graphics processors will be eventually available across entry-level, mainstream, performance-mainstream, high-end as well as so-called ultra high-end graphics cards. The new series of NVIDIA’s graphics processors is the company’s second generation lineup of DirectX 9.0-compatible offerings that greatly leverage the feature-set of NVIDIA GeForce FX graphics chips and brings important additional capabilities, such as Shader Model 3.0, as well as great performance improvements over the previous generation hardware.
