Gainward geforce FX 5800 Ultra
Here is some nice pics and preview benchmarks Gainward

The scores prove that XP service pack 1 must make your pc slower, I never would install it.

it only makes some pc's and some programs slower, service pack 2 will address that.

jAkUp 03-31-03 01:07 PM

lol come off it - it looks like it has urinal cakes on the memory and a rather dingy orange cooler that couldnt be less attractive if they tried.

IMHO the gainward card is the worst FX that ive seen at the moment. It has a rather nasty looking cooling system (well ok if you have no case window that may not matter to you - but i do so it does) and on top of that comes with pointless addons. A 5.1 Soundcard and a Firewire card. WHY does gainward assume that when we go shopping for a graphics card we want a firewire and soundcard too??? The most important reason its the worst FX - the price. Its completley OTT. You can get an Ultra by other manufacturers for the price of their standard 5800.

Yep,..that's pretty ugly.

You might not like the way it looks but with the way the fan comes off it looks like it would be the easiest geforce fx to mod. I wonder what it looks like under the chaintech fans or if the chaintech will ever come out, I haven't seen any new info on it. Gainward is the only company I've seen really hyping the FX ultra on their website.

save a bit of money and buy the 5800 nu golden sample and o/c to ultra speeds with minimal extra heat. I have o/c'ed my nu to ultra speeds with around 3-4oC difference.
