8800U s Updated : GeForce 8800 Ultra Card & Final Clocks Unveiled

A picture of the
GeForce 8800 Ultra card
appeared in our forums earlier and our sources
confirmed that it is one of the 2 reference cooler designs that NVIDIA let their
partners choose from. This design is the nicer looking one we heard. Also we learned that the final clocks for the 8800 Ultra
card set in at 650MHz for the core and 2.16GHz for the GDDR3 memories. Industry
sources are speculating that NVIDIA might revise the pricing downwards to be in
better competition with the upcoming Radeon HD 2900 XT cards. Reviews are set to
appear on May 1st and availability by mid May.

Update #1 : The final core clock on 8800 Ultra is apparently lowered
to 612MHz but memory clock remains at 2.16GHz. The shader clock is at 1.5GHz.
The memories used on the card are Samsung -1A GDDR3 chips at 1.0ns. NVIDIA has
also lowered the price of the 8800 Ultra to around US$ 850.
