512mb and 256mb 6800 ultra

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hi guys on the bfg website when you compare the pcie versions of the 6800 ultra you find that the:

256mb version has 425/1100 Mhz clock. 638 million vertices/sec.
35.2GB/second memory bandwidth.

while the 512mb version has 425/1050 clock. 638 million vertices/sec.
33.6GB/second memory bandwidth.

then what would justify getting the 512mb version when the 256mb version is so much better.

Nothing. The 512 MB 6800 Ultra is a wast of money. The 512 MB 7800GTX, on the other had, is much better then the 7800GTX 256 MB, because they upped the core and mem clocks.

basically just to be able to run higher resolutions and details on future games, but by the time those games come out there will be a much faster card anyways. I would just get the 256mb

Good choice.
Why, though, do they even sell the 512mb version?

To cheat you out of your money... I know a couple of people who have bought the 6800 Ultra 512 for $500-700, idiots...
