My 6800 Ultra doesn't have 2ns ram, it is 1.6ns. I ripped off everything to water cool it. So if you are buying an Albatron 6800 Ultra, you are getting the good stuff. It sure is fast.

does it really make that much of a difference?

in so many words, yes

We are talking .4ns RAM difference. Yes, that is enough to make a difference. Latency and speed.

Lol. The Ultra is supposed to have 1.6. If you bought it thinking it had 2.0 you were buying it getting ripped off. Practically the only difference between a GT and an Ultra besides clockspeeds. The 1.6 ram

I told you guys that Anandtech didn't bother looking for themselves to see what RAM modeuls the Asus and Albatron used. They said they both used 2.0 ns which is not true.

Worth mentioning is that XFX seems to be offering a dual DVI 6800nu of all things. Kinda cool :)

I'm mainly talking performance wise. 2 molxes and dual DVI do practically NOTHING for performance. And performance is why we buy the cards

sorry that i'm so dumb to all of this, but how big of a difference is 1.6 over 2.0?

LOL !!!

That says it all :)

PCB's are not all NVidia (opps) now I assume.

(dont believe everything u read ) there will be Ultras with slow ram as there is GT's with slow ram now .......:)

TRUST me ;)

well if you got a "crap " case you probably blow your card up LOL

joke....(what I mean is the extra clockspeed does not alot if you in 30c ambient and a 50 buck case..so its all relative)

its should be stable at higher clockspeed ......no doubt;)

ie: with 1.6ns on a GT you should clock above 1200MHz with stock fan

so a 10% difference mabee in fps some sims/games love mem speed some dont:)

Clock frequency is the main difference. CG20, 2.0ns ram should give you the ability of clocking at least 1.1GHz on the 6800 series while CG16, 1.6ns, can usually clock well above 1.2GHz. To some that is significant.

Probably means that 6800U boards will come with either 1.6ns or 2.0ns ram and it will really be luck of the draw.

I would just stick to best brand retail ..imo

1. You have longer warranties
2. Big companies will fix problems FAST (in most cases)
3. In most cases with BRAND retail you will get a faster card then OEM
(thats personal exp.)
4. Support / sites are usually better as well
5. Usually a better software package.

all good reasons to pay a few bucks more imo.

And the Albatron 6800GT that is coming my way in a few days have 2.0ns DDRIII RAM, so SCORE!

Hehe 2.0ns ddr3 is standard for 6800gt :)

Oh okay, I understand now. I didn't realize that it had something to do with OCing, I thought it was just like DDR CAS where everyone makes such a big deal out of having the lowest CAS timings, but 2-5-5-6 (or whatever the fastest are) only have like a 4% increase over 3-6-6-8 timings.
