The NVIDIA NV30 reference design specifies DDR2 for 5800, 5800U, FX1000, FX2000.
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 ??
