View Full Version : BFG 6800 Ultra question

My apologies if this has been asked or answered buried in another thread.

BFG is at or near the top of manufacturers I'd like to get a 6800 Ultra from when they become more widely available, but I want to make sure I'm getting a card that has 2 DVI outputs (instead of 1 DVI and 1 VGA).

BFG's website shows a pic with the ultra having 2 DVI outputs. However, I noticed Saturnotaku's BFG 6800 GT as having 1 DVI + 1 VGA. This concerned me a little because it seems a little odd that the GT would be 1 + 1, whereas the Ultra would be 2 DVI. You'd think that they would keep the outputs the same to keep the manufacturing processes for the 2 different cards as similar as possible. But maybe using 1 VGA on the GT is cheaper than keeping the manufacturing process similar.

Anyway..

My question is this: Whoever has an actual BFG 6800 Utra in their possession, did it come with 2 DVI or 1 DVI + 1 VGA? And was this card retail or OEM?

Thanks

Last week I confirmed with a VP at BFG Tech that the GTs (in US at leasst) will all be VGA + DVI + s-video. All of the Ultras (mine included) are DVI + DVI + s-video.

It seems they are only putting dual DVI on the ultras to boost sales of it.
