    XFX launches overclocked 6800

    XFX have taken the 6800's GPU from 300MHz all the way up to 325MHz - not exactly a stellar boost. GeForce 6 series GPUs do tend to overclock at least a little, so this 25MHz bump in core for the XT is a pretty safe bet for the company. If pricing is competitive towards slower clocked 6800 variants then it could grab a pretty good share of the mid-range gaming graphics market.

    I've read that those 110mn NV42 chips can clock up and offer serious competition to the 6800GT, they are just crippled with DDR only memory. Stick some 2.0ns GDDR3 on there and you'd have a fairly hot little card.
    See System Specs.

    I suspect if the pricing of these GPUs was cheap enough someone would be tinkering

    Could end up like with the 4200 - people copying that of the 4600 and being cheaper

    Do keep in mind that the NV42 110nm chip only has 12 pixel pipes and 5vp there is nothing to unlock.
