Any chance of firing up Tiger Woods 2004 with your new toy? The developer has a 6800U and commented publicly that 2004 ran like it was "on steroids" on the 6800U...would like to know if that is the same for you...

Thanks in advance!

Power supply info: I'm using an antec true 330 with a 6800 ultra extreme with both connectors. I haven't tried it with only connector (i'm afraid to). It's been fine with this power supply.

In other words go back to HardOCP and stick to flaming and annoying people there Fallguy.

Anyway, Jakup, you mentioned the 61.21 drivers work great with your card, that's cool. I just installed them on my "old", lol, 5900.

Good luck with the 6800Ultra dude, looks like a killer card.

I dont have the game... a demo is available right? If so I will DL later tonight..

As for the power supply connector.. I will try disconnecting it. But fot he overclocking... I set it back to default speeds because I started having that UT2004 problem when overclocking again... Every other game runs great, but UT2004 freezes for like a minute.. then comes back when overclocking.. really annoying/

Yes there is...


Tiger Woods 2004 Download page

Not sure if the video options are editable in this demo. I think it defaults to 1024x768...would love to know what FPS you get in it, though...

Thanks again...

Yeah, I was surprised (somewhat) when you said drivers fixed it. It seemed like the normal overclocking too far issue that I and others have had (with various nvidia cards). For me, it is similiar in that only certain games cause it to happen. Like NBA Live 2004 will do it consistently so it's the game I use for checking out after I've changed my overclock settings.

Anyway, does it happen even if you overclock just a little?

Yes... even a little. I mistakenly had set my card to overclock 5mhz... it was freezing in windows, and in ut2004, I could not figure out what the problem was... then I found it. But somehow all my other games work great... even 3DMark03/01 will finish without a hitch. This is pretty annoying though.

If GameVE fails to ship tomorrow, I'll want it. And Oklahoma is close to me, so don't relocate it yet :P

Default Re: My 6800 Ultra

Hey guys, Yes I'm new to this forum but I hope I can ad some intelligent and sometimes interesting posts to this forum, but before I get off track, let me get to why I joined this great forum, and yes it is one of the better forums I've seen. I recently cancelled my pre order for my radeon X800XT PE that I had on hold since the second day you could pre order them, WHAT is this guy nuts the ATI fan boys say, nope I just thought it was time for a change. As you can see I am neither an ATI, or NVIDIA fan boy, but like JAKUP respect both of the companies and the products they offer, and I also am going from an ATI 9800 pro to the 6800u. I personally think that the 6800u has more room to improve than the X800XT PE, and think that ATI has shot there wad for the year with the X800XT, seeing as how a mere 15-20 mhz increase on the X800XT sends this card into fits, and also noteing that this card is made from the low k process. The X800XT may have the leg up right now, but seeing as the nv 40 is a totally new chip design and the r420 is based off of the more mature r300 architexture and even with the 4.5 or 4.6 being beta drivers for the X800XT, I really don't see how they could squeeze to mutch more performance from that architexture. So I thought I'd give the nod to NVIDIA this round and try out the 6800u and hope they get all those famous driver performance increases NVIDIA is famous for. Where as with my ati cards I have never seen anything like the 15-20% improvements NVIDIA is famous for.

Welcome to nvnews oleasgamer .
yup here you'll find many intelligent and interesting posts about video cards in general & espeically NV cards .

& since the nvnews forums is full of non-biased members .. dont be surprised if someone here argued with you about the cancellation of the X800XT's preorder hehe

keep up reading Jackup's journal for more useful info about the 6800U & wait for the WHQL drivers which is coming soon hopefully .. so we can get an idea about the NV40's true performance

& dont think i'm happy reading all these threads cuz i'm dying to get my 6800U as soon as it hit the market where i live & start my own benchmarking session for the summer & replay many games i couldent enjoy @1600x1200 .
