Sneak Peek at the New GeForceFX 5600 Ultra

Since NVIDIA gave us the ok to publish Doom3 numbers from the shipping revision of the GeForceFX 5600 Ultra, we are able to give you a quick look at what has changed since we first reported on the 5600 Ultra.

The shipping version of the GeForceFX 5600 Ultra will use a flip chip package on the GPU (much like the NV30/35) and thus NVIDIA was able to hit higher clock speeds with this card, thus making it more competitive with the Radeon 9600 Pro. We will be bringing you a full review of the final shipping card next week, but for now here are some teaser pics:
