I'm currently gathering some video card data on which cards are universal AGP spec. and non-universal AGP spec., which are indicated by the notches on the card's AGP connector (two notches = universal card ; one notch = 1.5v or 3.3v card). At first, I thought that all GeForec 6800s were non-universal cards until I saw a screenshot of the PNY GeForce 6800 cards: http://www.pny.com/products/verto/geForce6/6800gt.asp

As you can see on the picture of the card, the card's connector clearly has two notches, indicating a universal AGP card. Can any PNY GeForce 6800 owners confirm if they have two notches or one notch on the AGP connector?

Most of the GeForce 6800s seem to have a single notch (the 1.5 key), which makes it non-universal AGP, such as this GeForce 6800: http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?image=14-170-057-01.JPG/14-170-057-02.JPG/14-170-057-03.JPG/14-170-057-04.JPG/14-170-057-05.JPG Most of the GeForce 6800 brands (LeadTek, eVGA, etc.) seem to only have one notch.

A universal AGP card has two notches, such as this 9800 Pro (http://www.newegg.com/app/Showimage.asp?image=14-102-268-05.jpg/14-102-268-03.JPG/14-102-268-02.JPG), which you can see, has two notches (3.3 & 1.5v keys).

Now, this picture of the PNY GeForce 6800 GT confuses me:
