    Yes I am aware of that but still whats the point of the faster core then?

    It makes me angry since I spent near $500 on my 8800gts and now a new card with crappy specs except the core which is higher in speed is comming out and will most likely be cheaper too.... grr

    Well the G80 cannot be clocked higher than at 630 but with WC - and even that at 680 max. So I wonder where they go.... Seems CADs VR-Zone link with 700/2000 is more correct

    okay now you confuse me, 8800 ultra?

    I have gotten 653 core on my 8800gts and stable with passing 3dmark 06 score of 10750, and this was without WCing.

    That's the way it works I suppose. I'm sure there is someone going "Shit, my 7600GT cost 400 bucks, and now it wont even run my OS... what is this world coming to?"

    Me? I'm going to buy a processor next instead of a GFX card, and wait for this huge price drop. Even if I wait for the Intel Q2 price drop, I'm still going to have to pay big bucks for nothing more than a 4mb cache instead of 2mb...

    well the only upside to my case is that I got an evga graphics card with the nice step up feature to upgrade the card to the gtx series 8800

    and since its an upgrade the gtx card will be brand new so I will sell it and then use the money to buy a better card once nvidia releases the new series

    If you reckon thats bad then Ive been hit by an asteroid

    XFX8800GTX XXX in SLI Have to upgrade when these newer ones come out - nVidia is saying theres an Ultra yes. Who knows, wait till 17th April, as before that most of it will be speculation. I've heard from 2 industry insiders before on their product release and specs 2 month in advance and they were both wrong!

    The Ultra should be the fastest fucking thing this side of the galaxy. Not slower than the GTS' It's part of the branding. MX, GTS, Ultra.

    Yea.

    You reckon?

    I'm not sure - R600 seems to have more potential... GTX is obviously higher up than the GTS but the Ultra can't be too far off the GTX with current chip limitations.
