The GeForce FX 5700 Ultra

As we have mentioned, the GeForce FX 5700 Ultra is based on the NV36 GPU. The core speed of the GPU on the eVGA card we tested was 475MHz. With 128MBs of DDR2 RAM running at 450MHz (900 MHz effective data rate), there is plenty of bandwidth to be had from this solution. As far as cooling goes, we can take a look at a typical 5700 Ultra board layout to see what we can expect:

The heatsink fan combo is fairly low profile, and this card will fit into an AGP slot without disturbing the neighboring PCI slot. Of course, we recommend leaving that slot open anyway, but its nice to have the option to use it if you need it. Though its not visible in this image, there is a heatsink on the back as well.

As far as the GeForce FX 5700 non-ultra version, we expect the clocks to hover somewhere around 425 core, 275 (550 effective) memory. NVIDIA has informed us that they are leaving these timings up to the OEMs, so we may see some variation in the playing field.

For testing our GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, we used the exact same setup as in our previous 9600XT review.

Now on to the architecture…

    Stop acting like a moron and coming to conclusions on your own. If you actually had a method to checks IPs, you would see that I only posted ONCE. (#96). Maybe other people posted more than once, but assuming that the 10 posts are only from one person is complete BS. Unless you have proof, keep your mouth shut. Reply

    Argh wtf.. this review is clearly biased. Very disappointing AT.. very..

    "The GeForce FX 5700 Ultra will be debuting at $199 after a mail in rebate. If $200 is your hard limit, and you need a midrange card right now, the 5700 Ultra is the way to go if you want solid frame rates."

    Its 200 dollars AFTER the rebate comes in the mail. If you only have money to buy a $200 card, how the hell are you suppose to buy a 5700? Don't know, don't care..

    Grrr.

    How dare you say ATI driver performance is not up to NVidia's?

    After all that cheating fiasco, replacing shader code, IQ optimization, Clipping planes, program detection, etc etc etc.

    WAKE UP dammit.

    60,000 and alone? Yet defending [A] on their crap?

    Now I understand why you live alone...even if you didn't want to it'll be hard to find a partner that can stand such a lame attitude.

    I agree on the part of doing some investigations before investing. Yet you contradict yourself if you see no IQ diferences....for the hardware you might be able to buy, you should see it miles away. I do in a cheapo 17" monitor.

    You should be investing more in your eyes man....

    No, it won't help, but for sure the website might GET A CLUE about what they are definitively not doing right.
