Hey guys, I've been thinking, remember how ATI was putting r360 cores on the non XT cards, and how the 5900's flash real easy to 5950's?
Who are we to say that our GT's are not ultra cores or even ultra extreme cores? Can I get some GT owners and some ultra owners to post teh markings on their cores? Lets see if we can compare. I'll start:

0UW2T00B30 0421A1
K KOREA

PNY 6800GT

your 0421A1 probably means it was taken out of the oven on 2004/ 21st week of this year and it's a A1 revision.

Aren't all retail/OEM boards A1? A0 is always reserved for the first run of the demo boards which get sent out to nVIDIA partners for reference card production, yes?

Yes most likely A1, somes it may take a few more revisions, (maybe A2, A3 I think was the case with NV30).

Well yeah I figured that was week markings there, but perhaps the previous string of numbers indicated type?
