There is a point, actually many of them:
1. Dumping away old NV40 cores from storages, >90% of them do 12/5@350MHz = money to NVIDIA, new AGP cards to customers.
2. It's basically the same card as Asus V9999GE = 90% of GF6800GTs performance, same performance as X800Pro AGP, see reviews (Google is your friend).
3. No other GF6800 series AGP cards are produced anymore = fastest NVIDIA based AGP card that is still delivered and produced.
