Hi all.

I bought this : http://www.asus.com/prog/spec.asp?m=V9999GE&langs=01

That is Asus Gamer edition. Is that faster clocked 6800GT or a normal GT?

Hope you can help.

found this in a review
" Surely you can find cheaper GeForce 6800’s out there – but few offer the stability of overclocking, 256MB of RAM and overall value of the ASUS V9999 "Gamer Edition" – that’s a moniker that ASUS should be proud of as it is truly targeted for Gamers.

GT cards do perform better, however, they cost upwards of $100 dollars more and may not offer enough performance gains to justify the added expense to some folks – that said, the V9999GE is a value by and standard. "

It's not a 6800GT, it's a regular 6800NU that has been set to the same core and memory speeds as the 6800GT. That may sound good, but the problem is it still have 12 pipelines instead of the 6800GT's 16 pipelines.

Ok it's official om ****ing coinfused.

Look here :
V9999GE :Memory Clock 1 GHz (500MHz DDR) 256mb

V9999GT :Memory Clock 700 MHz / 128 mb

i dont get it, a GT with 128 mb ?

look here : http://www.asus.com/products/vga/vgaindex.htm

It seem that Asus dont have a "normal" 6800GT ?

Well annyway it's the only card in stock here ind denmark that is faster then the "normal" 6800nu. I hope i will be happy with it.

ASUS is dumb to do that.... that's all I have to say about that :D

the GE just lacks some of the muscle that the GT has @ 16x12 with AA and AF due to the lack of one rendering quad and a vertex shader.... however, it truly whomps on the 128mb 6800NU due to memory size and clockspeeds...

It is a dang nice card. Have fun with it!!

yes they have a GT version
http://usa.asus.com/products/vga/v9999gt/overview.htm

it's just hidden from their main page

I'm telling you the "GE" is a 6800 non-ultra at GT speeds, but it still only has 12 pipelines

its like this:

6600 < 6600GT < 6800NU < ASUS 6800GE < 6800GT (reference) < 6800U

Next qustion :)
What driver to use? Im comming from a 9800pro so i need to know what driver to use :)

Yes, but it only has 12 pipelines compared to a normal GT's 16. That's why it comes in less than than the GT.

Use 61.77 for now. Don't use the one that is on the disk that came with the card. I found it didn't work as good as the 61.77 drivers.

Rob80 : dude you got the same card as me :) How is it performing? And what is your thoughts about the card?

I think it's a great card. But don't look for others to say that it is... People around here will go on & on & on about it like this

"It's only got 12 pipes, therefore a GF2 MX200 will kick it ass!!! :lame:


That fact is that this card is a very well built card and despite the fact that it only had 12 pipes, it's 256 DDR3 overclocks to better speeds than some are getting on there 6800GTs. Don't let any one around here tell you how ****ty the card is because of it's lack of 4 pipes. The GT is a great card and this card is right there with it... Things that I like include:

Great overclocker (440/1200 ~ no problem!).
Looks great with a window case
It's thin and only takes up one slot
Asus software is pretty neat.
And it's really quiet.

Thing I don't like:
It only has 12 pipes
And everyone that goes on about it.

I hope you enjoy your card. :smoking2:

See... that's ewxactly why i bitched about those asus cards in aanother thread.
Lots of users buy them and think they got a nice GT for a good price!
It'S unbelievable what asus is pulling off with it's costumers there.

Edit: And no i don't think it's a bad card. This one is labeled as GE at least. The GT with the sucky DDR1 memory is the rally ****ty thing from asus. (Sure also ok but why call it GT when it's a crippled GT?)

I agree with ya there! The "GE" name is okay, because it's a different card from the "GT"

But for them to call a 128mb card a "GT" ~ There's something wrong with that. inorder for a card to have the name "GT", it should have to meet a certain Criteria:

256DDR3
Around 350/1000 for a clock speed
AND 16 pipes.

Why this card gots 2 molex?

GT's only have 1 molex, only ultra's seems to need 2 of them.

it's necesary 2 independent lines? (oen lien for each molex like ultras)

yeah, it needs one from each rail...its to help it clock, and boy does it...

AFAIK, the only differnce between the reference gt and the asus ge, is 4 pipelines and one vertex shader.

So it might be better to call the ge a gt, but with four pipelines and one vertex unit less, instead of a better non-ultra.

Then again, confusing as asus are :lame: , they do have a non-ultra (ge, gt or whatever) with 2 molexconnectors. :retard:

Ok, I surely wouldn't want to buy such a GE card, BUT....;

Imo such 'bastard' cards like Asus' GE make the position of the
Geforce 6 series more broad and stronger in general. So, overall,
I'd say it's a good thing to have it out there on the retail market.

It's cool to see manufactures have so much 'space' to play around
with reference design ; my own Gainward golden sample GT with
dual slot dual fan copper cooler isn't exactly reference either.

Of course, the Gainward GT does meet the official GT specs ....
and then some :ORDER:
