Nvidia 8800 Ultra is out

Officially announced and all over the net


Today Nvidia officaly announced and introduced the world's fastest graphics processing unit (GPU), the Nvidia GeForce 8800 Ultra. Reviews and first looks are starting to appear all over the net. As you know Nvidia's NDA expired today. Mass availability is expected in two weeks, on May 15th 2007 as stated in the Nvidia PR.

The graphics card is equiped with 768MB of video memory that works at 1080 MHz (2160 MHz), a core that works at 612 MHz, and shaders at 1500 MHz. Nvidia gave a green light to all partners in the list - Asus, BFG, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision, Leadtek, MSI, PNY, Point of View, Sparkle and XFX. Nvidia is still all about DirectX 10, but we still can't see any software as yet. The first reviews indicates that the Ultra is about 10 per cent faster than the 8800GTX.

It is priced at a crazy $829 USD or even more, but it should come down to $699, which is still a lot for a 10 per cent speed up , and for a card with just a higher clock. Only good thing about it is the fact that it can be overclocked higher than the GTX, but there is still that higher price tag to worry about.

That is what all the review's around the net are all about, crazy price and a 10-15% performance bump. You can find some of these reviews over at HardwareZone, Legit Reviews, bit-tech.net, Guru 3D, HEXUS.net.
