I only had a real quick look through the hardocp review.. I don't quite get a couple of things though.

There is two different cards both called a 5600ULTRA??

They compare an overclocked 5600ULTRA to stocked clocked 9500 & 9600's?

someone please tell me this is not true.

I'm not trying to pick on anyone here.. but how the hell are we supposed to know what we are buying? the new one or the old one? Shouldn't they be named differently?

you would think nvidia would be nice enough to rename it to the 5700 instead of keeping the 5600 name, which now will confuse everyone and people may end up buying up the old inventory

I think you'll have to look at the specs (on the box). The new Ultra will be rated higher. Someone know the core/mem of the new and the old?

Umm... he mentioned that the old Ultras never made it to retail, and i hope that these are actually at the $200 price point, i see standard 5600's for that price, nVIDIA should have more control over pricing.

Pretty good review.
Nice to see Nvidia making it hard to choose
from the 9600 and 5600.

I think the new 5600ultra is a sweet card.
I would own one. Well, if i did not have a 5800ultra.

Sell your 5800 ultra, get the new 5600 ultra, it will be a great downgrade.
