Nvidia have held the GFX performance
crown for quite some time with the extremely impressive
8800 GTX, so when they announced the “Ultra”
a few weeks ago the general consensus was they
had yet again pushed the envelope further, albeit
with a huge price premium.
Everything considered, there will
always be a market for these high end cards and
with this in mind XFX sent us their new “XXX”
Ultra for review, with further improvements on
the core, memory and shader clocks. As AMD’s
graphics card division are yet unable to supply
an answer to the older GTX, the Ultra is certain
to push the two companies high end products even
With such a high price tag on
the Ultra our graphics card guru Stuart “Veridian3”
Davidson will not only measure the cards real
world gaming performance on XP and
Vista, but will ascertain if the card is ultimately
worth the money.
