Hmm, then same typo is on their product link

XFX GEFORCE 6800 128 MB DDR DUAL DVI & TV OUT (http://www.xfxforce.com/product_view.php?sku=PVT40KND)


Features & Benefits

High-Speed GDDR3 Memory Interface
Support for the world’s fastest GDDR3 memory delivers fluid frame rates for even the most advanced games and applications.

but in specs it states;

Memory Configuration

Memory Interface: 256-bit
Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec.): 22.4
Fill Rate (billion texels/sec.): 3.9
Vertices/sec. (million): 406
Memory Data Rate: 700
Pixels per clock (peak): 12

which matches standard DDR

bit misleading .
