As to be expected, performance usually doent move that much with ram clocks near as much as with chips. And the overall upgrade you see here is mostly ram. Doesnt surprise me, nor impress for a "Ultra" model. I spose some people will buy one tho 8O
what a complete waste of space, they aren't Ultra benchmarks, they're "we overclocked a GTX to what we think the Ultra will be at"
granted, if the specs being bandied about for Ultra are correct then Ultra itself is a complete waste of space anyway, but even so, must have been a slow day in the office for these guys to waste their time and webhosting on such tripe
Sheesh, that card is the biggest waste of $999 that I've seen in quite a while. I feel a great amount of pity for anyone stupid enough to buy that card, but I'm sure some of the filthy rich will pick it up.
Really if you think about it, it's almost exactly like the GF7800Ultra/GTX-512.
Buy two GF8800GTS-640s and put them in SLi and it should stomp a single GF8800Ultra for the same price.
I'd say forget the GF8800Ultra stick with whichever GF8800 you have (or if you don't, then go out and buy the GTS-320 right now) and then put the rest of the money in the bank, earn interest, take money out, spend interest on ice cream cone, and then buy the refreshed 65nm part when it arrives instead of the Ultra.
Better card plus ice cream; can't go wrong with that !! MMMmmm mmmMMM !!! :mrgreen:
