So are we now saying that even although manufacturers like ASUS, MSI and XFX advertise 5800 cards with DDR memory, they never actually made any and are therfore lying; or being economical with the truth as some might put it ??


To add to the question of there being actual 5800nu cards with DDR memory; here is firingsquad product info on a XFX 5800,

The XFX data clearly states that 5800 uses DDR and 5800u uses DDR2 ??
The more I know, the more I know I don't know
