XFX GeForce 6800 Ultra 512MB Review

Well, as our results have shown, the hardcore gamers may be a little
disappointed with this 512Mb card. On our game tests, we were not able to obtain
significantly higher performance even at very high resolutions and image
enhancements. Sadly, the card does not have the power to run the latest intense
games at 1600 x 1200 with 8xAA and 16xAF. This job is left
for the 512Mb cards in SLI mode. For those who are looking for the ultimate
gaming experience, they will be better off with 2 x 6800 Ultras 256Mb in SLI
mode.

The overclockers may be more interested though, as we have found better 3D
Mark
scores at equal clocks with the 256Mb Ultras. The card also overclocks
very well, especially the memory.

Pros:

  • Does not consume much more power than the 256Mb cards
  • Very overclockable
  • Runs 3D Mark faster than the 256Mb cards

Cons:

  • Does not give any significant boost in performance in present games
