Hi all I got my Leadtek 6800 GT REVISION B yesterday but I need some help

On the Leadtek website it states the following specs for the card

CLOCK 350/500MHZ
MEMORY 1000MHZ

On the box there is a sticker with the following

GPU 350MHZ
MEMORY 450MHZ

On the nvidia over clocking tab on my windows xp it states the following as default

Core Clock 350 MHZ
Memory 900MHZ


I would like to know whats going on with the sticker website and the actual spec reported by windows in the display properties tab under nvidia over clocking.

To me it looks like there is a couple of MHZ missing

Please could some one explain to me whats wrong here?

Thanks for a wicked forum

IT doesn't have a sticker on the box anywhere that says "lite" does it?

450MHz will be the single rate spec, it's the same as 900MHz.

Somethings up though, I didn't know there was a 'lite' version, but if there is you probably have it...

Erm... looks like someone made a mistake in sending you the "Lite" version. How much did it cost incidentally? And where did you buy it from?

My XFX GeForce 6800GT is also clocked at 900Mhz mem. And on anandtech forums there are several people with XFX cards like mine. Although I was able to clock it up to 1100 Mhz easily without artifacting. I still need to do a stress test to see if it is stable.

Is it DDR3 memory @ 900MHz
OR
DDR @ 900MHz?
If u can find out!

Leadtek don't mention a 'Lite' version on their site.. It would suck if it were DDR though. Check the advertised specs of what you bought and if it was supposed to be a normal GT get it replaced.

just crank up the ram to 500mhz.

i don't think you have to just crank up the ram to 500 because if you payed for a 350/500 then you have to get it!

and with the card you should have got you could crank up the ram to 550, then call back and ask to replace your gt with a real gt card :P

Your the second one i just saw, i think there was a guy over at guru3d also complaining about this. He had to go through a huge hassel to get the real deal, i dont know if he has got it yet, but yes that is not very nice of leadtek, alot of people are now avoiding leadtek, including me.

this lite vers is the only gt leadtek has shipped over the last 3 weeks. they are charging the same for it. it is gddr3, just lower speed binning.
my gt lite got a whopping oc of 360 core & 960 mem. imo the gpu is a lower speed bin too.
leadtek is supposed to have some real gts on the way. course they have been saying that since last week.
got an email from them today, i asked if they knew if the shipment went out from taiwan today
response-
If it ships, we will get the paperwork on the following day.
I shoud be able to know it by Monday.

so that is where getting a leadtek replacement is at.

no they have not. in fact i am tired of waiting for them- almost 2 weeks & no definite on when the cards will arrive.
so i called gameve & told them i was not going to wait anymore & wanted another card. they asked me which one, i told them the new gigabyte with the nifty heatpipe/fan cooler. said they would get it out today or monday.
i also sent an email to leadtek & told them what i thought of their fraudulent activities & very poor customer support. also asked them how they colud run a business when no one knows when they are getting their product?
anyway, leadtek will never see my or anyone i knows bussiness again. hopefully people are getting the message out there about these cards. what a rippoff.

if the card was not advertised as a 'lite' there should be no issue at all with returning/swapping it.

Would be a good name for a nancy drew book.

Also, you could also rename this thread "Reasons to buy BFG or eVGA" ;)

i swapped mine for the new gainward. their cooling system looks very promising. hopefully it has the core & mem to back it up.

You should get what you paid for. Leadtek doing this kind of trick is very sad.

mike2h
10-16-04, 01:08 AM
what is really sad is leadtek is still pushing these 'lite' vers for the same price as their reg gt. guess they figured if they did not lower the price everything would be same-same.
unfortunatly it appears they were mostly right & do not give a **** about the rest.

I do not know if leadtek is reponsible for the prices or rather the online vendors.
