Default NVIDIA 8800 Ultra Proves to be a Tragically Arrogant Mistake

NVIDIA 8800 Ultra Proves to be a Tragically Arrogant Mistake


"Considering R600 is not looking to be an “8800-killer,” it would seem that NVIDIA has miscalculated the 8800 Ultra product and only ended up marketing against themselves and looking somewhat foolish and arrogant with this overpriced product that seems to be little more than a “PR part.” Sorry NVIDIA, your Ultra is just not worth the money."

yup- same with higher clocks and an improved cooler- not worth the dosh- anyone interested in that high-end gear will be watercooling anyway and can get the same clocks with a GTX
