I was reading that it was 16 pipe; so it has as many pipes as the ultra ?

Non ultras are 3 quad processing GPUs also known as having 12 pixel processing pipelines.

Ultras are 4 quad processing GPUs also known as having 16 pixel processing pipelines.

Some are saying Non Ultras are Ultras with 1 quad procossing unit lasered off/disabled etc.

Its a 12 pipe. 4 of the pipelines are disabled.

That is wrong totally if its a non ultra. plus it says it uses GDDR3 memory modules...I didn't think that the 6800 non ultras used gddr3 memory. They use DDR1 memory modules...of course it also maybe the OEM/AiBs discretion to which memory modules they use.

Muya is right, Only a few Non Ultras use GDDR memory.

Mine uses 2.2ns DDR Memory.

It clocks from 700 to 900. (yes I had to put that in cuz memory overclocks make me happy in my pants)

Check out the Ixbt review of that card. They also verify its a 12 pipe wonder :)

Horrible cut n paste errors

The 6800NU (any brand) is 12 pipes.

The Leadtek website says its 16 pipe; so I have to believe them or else they would get in trouble for false advertising.

Someone at Leadtek's web designing/hosting is not doing their homework.

If a non ultra was a 4 quad (16 pixel pipeline) working GPU and cost only $299, do u not think everybody would be jumping to get one. I sure as hell would ;)

However that is not the case, its a 3 quad gpu which was unsuccesfully bios flashed to a Ultra/GT at digit-life.

I will contact Leadtek and we will see.

@nvjarret
yes please do and post their reply here. I would also like to know if they indeed have something that all us affiliated NVIDIA websites weren't told about, heck all hardware review websites. you could also download teh nv40 launch video where Ujesh Desai confrimed the non ultra to be a 3 quad gpu.

OK, go for the 16 pipe 6800 non ultra then :)

Uhm, but he does raise a valid question.... How do we, end users of 6800 series can ascertain whether we have true 16 or 12 pipes? I mean, which program can show us that? ;)

NV have said non ultra is 3 quad/ 12 pixel processing GPU

GT = 4 quad / 16 pixel processing GPU

Ultra = 4 quad / 16 pixel processing GPU

Program? I guess u can crank up fillrate program and ascertain the pixel pipeline.

I ordered this card and it's on its way; I'll check to see if it is with 3DMark 03 ?

The advertised fillrate shows it only has 12 pixel pipelines. The 6800NU isn't bad but it isn't 16 pipelines.

Tss, i know 6800nus are 12 pipes, just some people are stubborn over what they see. remind me of the copy/paste on Asus X800s card with a SM3.0 support :)
