NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 6800 Ultra sales 14 April 2004 at a recommended price of $499 . This is Curie architecture desktop card based on 130 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 0.3 GB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.1 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 35.2 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 1-slot card attached via AGP 8x interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 216 mm. Two molex power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 81 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.87 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
