GeForce 8800 Ultra; An Overclocked G80

Nothing really fancy about the upcoming GeForce 8800 Ultra as we learned that
it is just a higher clocked G80 card. It still has 128 stream processors and has
768MB of GDDR3 memories onboard. The card design is similar to 8800 GTX but it
comes with a bigger cooler. There are 2 cooler designs for the card makers to
choose from. INQ
says NVIDIA is aiming for 10-15% improvement in benchmarks so we are speculating
a 650-700MHz core clock. The top speed bins from the G80 lots could be for 8800
Ultra and thus better overclockability. 8800 Ultra could very well match up
against the Radeon HD 2900 XTX card but the price is going to pull it down if it
gonna stays at US$ 999. May is clearly an exciting month where we can see lots of
action from both sides.
