different 6800 card comparisons

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.videocards.nvidia (More info?)

I see that a low end 6800 is now available online:

LEADTEK WINFAST A400 STD FX6800 128MB


Any idea on what the performance of this card is compared it an ultra or
GT??


I see that its approximately half the price of the Ultra, does that mean its
got about half the performace? (basically putting it in the 5900 class as
far as speed).

thanks for any advice,

    I don't think that any of the review sites tested this low
    end card, so nobody knows.

    12 pipes vs 16.
    Lower clock rates for both GPU and memory.
    Single power-connection. Single card-slot.

    Maybe 25% faster than a FX5950 Ultra.
    Identical DX9.0c functionality to its bigger
    brothers.

    A good speed-fit for the amount of RAM on-board.
    Any faster demands more video RAM to take
    advantage of higher resolutions and higher levels
    of antialiasing.

    Go on-line and compare specs.
