8800 Ultra The Black Pearl

Quote:
The EVGA e-GeForce 8800 Ultra Black Pearl Edition takes extreme performance, and keeps it cool; ensuring the ultimate in reliability and overclocking. In addition to strict in house testing, this EVGA card features “Superclocked†core, memory and shader clocks. Innovative “E-Flow†technology can keep the card from breaking a sweat under extreme conditions.

Just ask Vince “k|ngp|n†Lucido. He was able to raise the bar and set the 3DMark 2006 world record at over 25,000 points with a pair of EVGA 8800 Ultra’s.
Looked and didn't see this posted so what the hell. The 3dmark06 scores are INSANE!

Nice find. I don't even want to think about the pricetag on this thing.

I like these single-slot video cards that don't expand over half of my expansion card slots. But though, this costs nearly as much as my car.

Time to buy a lottery ticket! ;D

I don't understand why such things make news.

Superclocked / Hyperclocked / Ultra / ect edition videocards should excite a Dell user, not a true overclocker. Because a true overclocker is a DIYer. You don't need the factory to install the watercooling for you and overclock it for you and then pay him 2x what it is worth.

So why is this news?

Isn't the Ultra already $800 without a waterblock? If so, they aren't charging that much for the waterblock so why not purchase it if you have the money? There is always something to be said for doing it yourself, but the same goes for boards such as these. Besides, chances are you will get more out of a card like this than a regular-clocked one that you OC yourself.
