Default Re: Finally a XFX 6800 GS 256 mb AGP

XFX has these listed on their website...

"XFX GeForce 6800 GS 256 MB DDR3 Extreme Edition" that is clocked at 450MHz.

"XFX GeForce 6800 GS 256 MB DDR3 XXX edition" that is clocked at 485MHz.

The standard AGP speed is 350MHz, as it is shown to be used by the eVGA product also.

This may be a design limitation. Does the AGP variant still rely on a HSI chip to translate from PCIe to AGP? If so, these produce lots of heat. Heat is one of the limiting factors for overclocking.

Still, it's a nice video card for the money.
