Just checked the status of my order and it has arrived in the store.

Going to pick it up during my lunch or after work.

The memory is clocked at 1200Mhz and hopefully the GPU will be overclockable above 430 Mhz.

Got it for 5795 SEK ~ 779 USD

He isn't in the USA, that price may be good in Sweden.

Nope. Not the Extreme.

Actually that is a good price in Sweden for Gainward.

I bought my 5900 Ultra last summer for 5499 SEK ~ 738 USD (and then the USD was stronger against the SEK so it was actually more ;-) )

I hope I'll get my Gainward GS 6800GT today as well =) Also in Sweden. Costed me some 4700SEK ~ 631 USD
Lalander could you please post your results/overclock on it. I would really like to know how does Ultra fare... Sadly I couldn't find any Gainward reviews online, but I couldn't wait any longer :P

Please post what drivers will you use, being long time ATi user I will need all help I can get here!

Thank you for your time!

I reserved a Leadtek WinFast A400 Ultra TDH. It's only US$538.480 and I'm in Hong Kong. We don't have Gainward, BFGTech, PNY or EVGA here and the only brandnames that sells in Asia are Leadtek, Asus, MSI, Galaxy, Forsa, etc.

Anyway, here's a pic for the Gainward FX Powerpack! 6800ultra/2600 GS:

No pics yet (at work).

This one has the reference cooler.

I had hoped for the enhanced copper version...

I will post overclocking and some benchmarks, comparing it to my 5900 Ultra.

The one is the pic I showed is said to be clocked 450/1200 out of the box with copper cooler. And the Gainward Ultras won't be shipping in the US until 7/30.

Hi Lalander,

Where did you order the Gainward 2600 GS???

I'd be really curious to know...

I can't find a shop anywhere that actually has stock of that one!

Thanks....

Webhallen.com (a Swedish site with a store in central Stockholm).
I guess the batch they got sold out because they are out of stock right now...

No need for pics since it is the reference cooler with a picture of Nalu on it.

I have a few problems so far.

When I use Coolbits and ask for optimal overclock it gives me 454 MHz/900 ?

When I press the button for default values I get 300/600 for 3D. WTF?

A driver bug?

I didn't do a clean-up before installing newer drivers but I will do that tonight.

I have also had a garbled once desktop after running 3DMark03. Also a driver issue I think because the temp under load never gets above 85C (tested using RivaTuner).

The card must have been clocked down when I ran 3DMark03.
Using EXPERTool and overclocking to 430/1200 I got this result:

12544 (http://service.futuremark.com/compare?2k3=2787827)

I guess I am CPU limited :-(
