I guess...theres always some companies who decide to have different clocks....just like with the 6600GT AGP some companies had memory at 900 some had it at 1ghz.
Well aside from the memory, the whole benches, why it's not as powerful were still answered in the beginning of this thread with that link.
jesus man that's ridiculous. 6217 is the highest I've gotten with my 6800GT and that's watercooled and I've overclocked the crap out of it....I wonder how well that GS would overclock if water cooled?
Apparently it'd run cooler, draw less power, and be more powerful once you overclock it.
However, you'd just have to hope you got as lucky as those guys but you know they are just using regular air cooling.
Nvidia pretty much made the 6800GT and Ultra look like crap with this card lol...WHERE WAS THIS MONTHS AGO!?
