EVGA e-GeForce 8800 Ultra Superclocked
Posted by newsbot on May 31st 2007



Getting back to EVGA's card and bundle, we think that it's agoodproduct, but it's priced out of the grasp of most early adopters,nevermind the enthusiasts that regularly read bit-tech. It just doesn'toffer enough value for money over EVGA's e-GeForce 8800 GTXSuperclocked card, which is over £100 cheaper.This isn't uncommon for products based on Nvidia's GeForce 8800 UltraGPU though, because the initial cards clocked at reference speeds werepriced well out of the market too.At least the price has come down a little bit, but we can't help butfeel it needs to come down further still. The reference clocked GeForce8800 Ultras start at around £470 (inc VAT) now, but we don't believethat the minuscule performance between it and EVGA's Superclocked 8800GTX warrants a £50 price premium - £20 would be more acceptable in ourbook. As for EVGA's heavily overclocked GeForce 8800 Ultra that we'velooked at here, we think that it needs to come down below £500 beforeit's going to be an attractive proposition.The current pricing structure just places it in the bracket for thosewith more money than sense. A shame, because that's about the onlything wrong with this product.
