Default 512mb 6800 Ultra

It's not that big of a deal or anything but thought some people might like some pics. Appearantly a lot less capacitors on the thing which is pretty cool as now it will be harder for someone to accidentally break one off.

No steroids. Same VPU with twice the VRAM.

Looks great, i wonder if they are going to be in the 600$ figure. I can imagine the 6800 will be less expensive then the ATI. They are coming out this summer rite?

The card will have to allocate a larger amount of memory on the same clock speed and pipeline architechture, so it will naturally take longer to perform tasks.

More memory does not equal more speed.
