Nitteo and Cognoscenti have SLI Ultras with Quads. Imo, they are overpriced gimmicks. And there have been many reports of the XFX Ultra XXX editions dying within a week or artifacting out of the box. Doesn't look good.
Seriously get a GTX forget the Ultra, and overclock the hell out of a GTX instead. You won't get the memory clocks of an Ultra but from my own tests memory overclocking on the cards gains virtually nothing, it's all about the core. My card does 650Mhz Core 2000Mhz Memory with ease, yet to try higher.....but i know mine can.
