Has anyone noticed that the Albatron 6800GT looks more like a 6800Ultra?

All the 6800GTs that I've seen have one molex connector, one vga connector and one DVI connector. The 6800Ultra has two DVI and two molex.

The link below is a picture of Albatron's 6800GT.

Would this mean that Albatron's 6800GT is more overclockable then other 6800GTs given that there is sufficiant cooling?

Looks like a GT HSF to me...

Not necessarily. If a particular chip Albatron uses can be safely clocked at Ultra speeds, the company is going to label it as an Ultra. The biggest attraction on this card is the second DVI output.

I don't see why they would need a second molex socket though.

I would think the second molex might supply more power for stable OC's, especially using some extreme cooling. I guess we'll find out sooner or later.

I had emailed Albatron support last week and they indeed say this is how the GT will be released.

I can only assume the extra power connector will help in O/C stability. But we will just have to wait for the reviews.

My top 3 list:

Albatron, Asus, Leadtek.

Now I've been looking more into Leadteks design all copper base for front and rear. The Ultra is a monster sink, looks bigger then most CPU Sinks. However I want the GT model.

Check out the links to high res pics at the bottom of this page.

What if these are indeed 6800U that didn't cut the mustard, so are now being sold as 6800Gts? Meaning the overclock will not be much if any. Interesting and hope that is not the case and that these turn out to be real gems for overclockers.

Lets hope for gems. If they are gems then just rig up some water cooling and ram sinks and OC like crazy. Something BFG has done with their Ultra at the bottom of this link:
