The GeForce 6 Series GPU
The previous chapter described how GPU architecture has changed as a result of compu-
tational and communications trends in microprocessing. This chapter describes the archi-
tecture of the GeForce 6 Series GPUs from NVIDIA, which owe their formidable
computational power to their ability to take advantage of these trends. Most notably, we
focus on the GeForce 6800 (NVIDIA’s...
