NVIDIA is preparing yet another GeForce 6800 model, the GeForce 6800 LE.
Specifications of the GeForce 6800 LE are not disclosed at all so it's a little speculative what the producty will actually be. It is even not clear whether the GeForce 6800 LE is a lower-speed flavour of the GeForce 6800 with 12 pixel and 6 vertex pipelines, or is a cut-down version of the mentioned graphics processing unit with only 8 pixel pipelines and/or fewer vertex pipelines. Earlier this year some reviewers got the GeForce 6800 graphics cards with only 8 rendering pipes enabled. After flashing a new BIOS version, additional 4 pipelines were activated. NVIDIA may respond to ATI's x800 SE with its GeForce 6800 LE aimed strictly at OEMs.
