"Mobile chips are not Nvidia's traditional playing field and a segment in which it had little success to challenge ATI's market dominance. The company however is serious to increase its pace and chip sales in a territory where it sees lots of growth opportunity. Recently, Nvidia introduced the Go 6200 and 6600. Now the firm expanded its high-end offering with the GeForce Go 6800 Ultra: The processor will mainly appear in prestigious performance and desktop replacement (DTR) notebooks and debuted today inside Dell's fastest mobile computer."
"...the XPS put up numbers comparable to a high-end desktop gaming machine. Combining the power of the GeForce Go 6800 Ultra with the Pentium M 2.13GHz, is downright unfair. It's no easy feat to run Doom 3 at 1600x1200 with high-quality settings at well over 60 frames per second. The Inspiron XPS Gen 2 laptop will outperform all but the most power of desktop systems."
"If your goal is the best mobile 3D performance available, then nVidia's DDR3-based solution will give you the best frame rates."
"If you crave fast 3D gaming performance that you can carry in a backpack, the GeForce Go 6800 will scratch your itch. Just be prepared..."
"The performance of the GeForce Go 6800 Ultra is unprecedented in the mobile space."
"Bottom line: Overall the best piece of gaming machinery that money – lots of money – can buy. Components like NVIDIA’s latest graphics, the GeForce Go 6800 PCI Express, will blow you away…. Perhaps the biggest inclusion is nVidia's PCI Express graphics. The nVidia GeForce 6800 Go along with the Intel Pentium 4 560 (3.6-GHz) processor produced stellar benchmark test scores."
"PC World's first tests of NVidia's just announced high-end mobile graphics chip, the GeForce Go 6800, show that it is one of the first notebook graphics components to support performance rivaling that of desktop boards."
Nvidia started to challenge ATI in the mobile segment since the announcement of its first notebook chip GeForce2Go in November 2000. Since then, the manufacturer has come closer to its competitor. The new GeForce Go 6800 will take the role of the firm's flagship product for this segment from the GeForce FX Go 5700 and makes the most significant performance jump yet, as tests and benchmark results from Tom's Hardware show.
"The GeForce Go 6800 is undoubtedly the best mobile GPU we have every gamed with. The GeForce Go 6800 provided a better gaming experience than we see on many desktop computers. NVIDIA has something special in the GeForce Go 6800 and we hope to be seeing more notebooks using the technology soon as it will only help push LAN gaming and the experience that goes along with it out to the masses."
"NVIDIA has taken the word compromise out of mobile graphics with its GeForce 6800 Go 256MB. Recent gaming titles run a treat in high-quality mode and AntiAliasing/Anisotropic Filtering can be used without fear of turning a game into a slideshow. 256MB of onboard memory is a first for NVIDIA's consumer-level mobile parts, and it genuinely helps out at higher resolutions. The onus is back on ATI's shoulders to continue the game of mobile one-upmanship."
"Obviously nVidia was making a big noise about the performance of the GeForce GO 6800, and the demos that were shown at the briefing were very impressive indeed... the new video processing engine integrated into the GeForce GO 6800. Pure Video definitely seems to have some cool features that make watching video on your notebook a more pleasing experience."
