    differences besides clock speed.Thanks

    The 6800 has 12 pipes. The 6800 Ultra and GT have 16 pipes.

    if memory serves, the non ultras are 300mhz gts are 350 and ultras are

    i should add the gt's and ultras have a broken video processor which means
    they cant hardware decode mpeg4 like the nonultra and 6600 can

  5. The 6800 has 12 pixel pipelines, 5 vertex pipelines, and uses DDR memory.

    The 6800 Ultra has 16 pixel pipelines, 6 vertex pipelines, and uses GDDR3

    6800's have a problem with VMR9, not MPEG4.

  8. Here's an interesting link on the subject, I'm not sure how I feel about the
    whole issue, though I sense NV40 owners are in for some payback.

    Is there a hacked bios to turn on the extrao pipelines?

    There are tools for that, but you get no guarantees that the pipelines
    you unlock actually work. Plus the fact you get slower memory with the
    vanilla, so you won't get it's memory clock as high as a GT/Ultra.

    My Asus V9999 is a plain FX6800 but does come with 256 MB of DDR3. Perhaps
    it's the exception, I don't know. It's base speeds are 325/700, but it
    easily overclocks to 375/1020 with stock cooling.
