Gt does almost as good as the Ultra...

The GT and NU both look good. Thanks for the link.

I expected the 6800 to be on the X800pro level but considering clockspeed I think its ok

the 6800 GT is the one to get I think

but considering clockspeed I think its ok
Also, remember it's a $100 cheaper listing for $299 instead of $399.

I know, but since its also 12 pipe like the x800pro I expected similar performance

People willing to get a fx5950 or 9800pro should consider gettin a 6800nu instead.

They could be testing a 6800NU that only has 8 pipelines enabled. With bios flash, apparently the 12 pipelines will be enabled and the 3dmark03 score should be in the 9k range.

The 6800NU will be a bit slower in some cases because it has less fillrate (w/ 325Mhz core clock) and less memory bandwith (w/ 350Mhz mem clock) than the other cards mentioned in this thread.

It looks like the GeForce 6800 GT thoroughly trounces the X800 PRO in most benchmarks. Remember, the GT was supposed to go up against the X800 PRO while the Ultra takes on the X800 XT PE. Nvidia really has a winner with the GT. I guess the 6800 nu will go up against the future X800 non-PRO. This generation has both ATI and Nvidia very close in overall performance at the high end. The new 6800 series is a great accomplishment for Nvidia after the GeForce FX flop.

It definitely looks like a good performer for its value. The "X" factor for enthusiasts that get the X800 Pro is the fact that almost all of them overclock like crazy. I boosted my 3DMark03 speeds with that card from 9800 at default to 11300 overclocked to 550/550. Of course everyone's overclock is not the same assuming the overclock at all.

There are a lot of good video cards out or coming out soon - a nice time for people looking to upgrade.

I'm not a big fan of overclocking. I've heard horror stories about people frying their cards.

I will definitely have the GT in my second rig,

and as others said the X800Pro is very under clocked. Even a conservative over clock puts mine well in the 10k range in 3dmark. Best I can get out of it is 11.5k details in the sig. I tried clocking the card at 425/550 and it turned in 10.143 with my CPU at default speed.

Still I will enjoy those 4 extra pipes on the GT.

If you want to see the scores of a unlocked X800Pro try this site:

I think its around 11,025k at default(475/450)

It is true that the X800Pro seems to be able to reach relatively high clock speed levels. At the same time, since the 6800GT is a 16 pipeline card, it needs less of an overclock to maintain fillrate parity with the X800Pro. For instance, the X800Pro would need to be overclocked at 567Mhz core (from 475Mhz stock) in order to match fillrate of a 6800GT overclocked at 425Mhz core (from 350Mhz core). So ultimately, the overclocking element may end up to be a wash, we will see.
