NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra
The GeForce 6800 Ultra was a high-end graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in July 2004. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV45 graphics processor, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The NV45 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 287 mm² and 222 million transistors. It features 16 pixel shaders and 6 vertex shaders, 16 texture mapping units and 16 ROPs. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support). NVIDIA has placed 256 MB GDDR3 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 400 MHz, memory is running at 550 MHz.
We recommend the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra for gaming with highest details at resolutions up to, and including, 1024x768.
Being a dual-slot card, its power draw is rated at 81 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x S-Video. GeForce 6800 Ultra is connected to the rest of the system using a PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. The card measures 197 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 499 US Dollars.
