Default Re: Geforce 6800 AGP voltage

But I have never seen a Geforce 6800 graphics card keyed for 3.3 V (AGP universal). Even the older boards without the PCIE/AGP bridge have only one notch and fit only into AGP 1.5 V capable mainboards.

My question is: Does the older Geforce 6800 GPU with the native AGP interface work in old 3.3 V AGP Mainboards? Or would such mainboards burn out?
The standard, old, or whatever you want to call it, version of 6800 AGP card is NOT compatible with a 3.3v only mobo !
