The GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL was a high-end graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in April 2004. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV40 A1 graphics processor, in its 6800 Ultra variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0c. The NV40 A1 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.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 100 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI. GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL is connected to the rest of the system using an AGP Pro 8x interface. The card measures 305 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution. Its price at launch was 599 US Dollars.
