In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GT 445M v2 are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce Go 6800.

The GT 445M was released over three years more recently than the GeForce Go 6800, and so the GT 445M is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce Go 6800 when running the latest games.

The GT 445M has 768 MB more video memory than the GeForce Go 6800, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GT 445M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GT 445M has 22.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce Go 6800, which means that the memory performance of the GT 445M is slightly better than the GeForce Go 6800.

The GT 445M has 144 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce Go 6800 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce GT 445M v2 requires 35 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce Go 6800.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GT 445M v2 is a Fast-Middle-Class Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Fermi Architecture.

The Fermi Architecture is manufactured with a 40nm technology and uses a technique known as Hot Clocking: The Shaders are clocked twice as fast as the Central Unit. While this leads to a reasonable performance boost, it causes enormous amounts of energy dissipation, leading, ultimately, to a significantly higher operating temperature.
Fermi is also the first GPU architecture with fully cached memory access which increases memory performance.

It equips a GPU Codenamed GF106-N11E-GE-A1 which has 3 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 144 Shader Processing Units, 24 TMUs and 16 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 570MHz.

The GPU accesses a 1GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 625MHz.

DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Optimus, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 35W, it is suited for 15" or larger laptops.

Gaming benchmarks put its performance almost on level with the desktop GeForce GT 450 v4.

System Suggestions
We recommend a decent processor (Intel Core i5 Mobile) and 4GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GT 445M v2.
NVIDIA GeForce Go 6800 is the mobile version of the medium-performance GeForce 6800.
The performance depends a lot on the memory type used, which can be DDR/DDR2 or even DDR3.
Using DDR3, GeForce Go 6800 might be as fast as a GeForce 9400M. Still, even an Intel HD 3000 delivers better performance.
