Anand's Take on Mobile 6800 Ultra
Subject: Mobile | February 24, 2005 - 10:22 PM | Sean Pelletier
The guys at Anandtech also had the opportunity to take the new GeForce Go 6800 Ultra for a spin on Dell's new flagship gaming notebook. Is this latest mobile graphics module truly worthy of the "Ultra" branding? Per usual, there's only one way to find out.
Today, Dell is introducing their Inspirion XPS Gen 2. The DTR notebook features a 2 or 2.13GHz Pentium M and a GeForce Go 6800 Ultra with 450/550 core/memory clocks. Rather than just ship their Go 6800 at the high core speed, NVIDIA has given it the Ultra moniker to differentiate the product.
The "new" GeForce Go 6800 Ultra graphics card is exactly the same as the original Go 6800, except that we are finally seeing it at the high clock speeds NVIDIA originally promised we would see.
