The Next Generation GeForce 6800 Ultra (!)


I am speechless.

I have never seen numbers this high in games or benchmarks ever.

This is the biggest performance leap from one generation of graphics cards to the next, ever.

This thing makes a Radeon 9800xt look like it's a 3 year old mainstream card. Performance doubles, even triples at higher settings compared to a 9800xt.

But the numbers don't lie. Over 12000 in 3dMarkk03, over 60 fps in Halo at 1600x1200, over 50fps in FarCry with everything on high, AA and AF on.

Prepare to upgrade your power supplies folks. Recommended size from Nvidia: 480 watts with 4 ATX connectors, as the Ultra takes 2 dedicated ATX connectors itself.

GeForce 6800 Ultra Benchmarks on Tom's Hardware

I'll let the rest of the numbers do the talking. I can't wait to see what comes out of the ATI camp to compete with this thing.

erm... like i said on the other thread, don't waste your money on this card when it comes out, because PCI-Express will blow AGP away. Instead, wait for nVidia to release a PCI-X version of it.

Hmm i dont' know its certainly making up for the FX lines flop thats for sure.

though ther are probably one 10 people on this forum with a good enough PSU to use it, it has more transistors than a 3.4ghz P4EE! 222million of them, the non-ultar is the one i liek though $299, 12piplelines and good power reqs.

Haha, this made me giggle.

but can your PSU support it?
i'm still wary they might have hit the nial on the head or not, it depends on ATI's offereings and if Nvidai decides to cheat on benches again (though the game benches shown seem s to say they are not)

I have an Antec TruePower 480W PSU. I actually just opened my case and had a look to be sure I had a couple of spare cables. I do, fucking sweet! Now I just need some money.

You missed the "I just need money now" part. I would have to not eat for a week, which may be worth it.

I am thinking just the non ultra version. I could afford that easily. The ultra is incredibly expensive. I am going to get in trouble for spending USD300 on a gfx card, you people are a bad influence on me.

::sighs:: ok, but dont say I didnt warn ya. PCI-X will come out, and a PCI version of the card will probably be made, and totally pwn the AGP version...

Besides. Everyone else will have PCI-X and you will have an AGP. I'm tellin ya, people will be like, "dude, get out of the STONE AGE"
