NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce 8800 Ultra sales 2 May 2007 at a recommended price of 829 USD. This is Tesla architecture desktop card based on 90 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 512 MB of GDDR3 memory clocked at 1.08 GHz are supplied, and together with 384 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 103.7 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is 2-slot card attached via PCIe 1.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 270 mm. An additional 2 6-pin power connectors are required, and power consumption is at 171 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 11.41 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon R9 390 X2.
