    HEXUS.reviews :: eVGA 8800 Ultra KO, yours for just £540!

    Arguably NVIDIA didn't need GeForce 8800 Ultra at all - the Radeon HD 2900 XT didn't even answer the performance question posed by GeForce 8800 GTS.

    So what do NVIDIA's partners do with 8800 Ultra when faced with that reality? Why, they overclock it, of course, and we're taking a close look at one example, the £540 eVGA 8800 Ultra KO.

    Check out our take to find out if eVGA's £540 offering does enough good things to justify that astonishing price-tag.

    Pg2.

    "Like the GeForce 8800 GTX, the Ultra needs two two-pin power connectors but the hardware supports SLI if you fancy running two Ultras in tandem."

    Surely thats 2 6pin's ?

    But the picture also shows solder points for an 8pin like the ATIs, im guessing thats for the 8800 SuperUltra, or TurboGTX, or whatever excuse Nvidia can make for adding an extrea 10Mhz to the core, and charging £200 for the consumer.

    I see what you mean but, when I take the raw code and stick it in my HTML editor, it looks perfect.

    I can also get the real, live, page to look okay if I reduce the width of the browser window but that's not an ideal situation, of course.

    Hopefully, one of our coding gurus can see what I can't - the cause of the problem - and will do a fix.

    Sorry, I was just the word-mechanic for this review - I don't personally have any insider info on changes in pricing.
