The groundbreaking NVIDIA GeForce 6800 graphics processor used on both the Ultra and GT graphics cards delivers the industry's first 16-pipe superscalar architecture and support for fast GDDR3 memory to raise the bar for 3D graphics performance. The specifications of the GeForce 6800 GT DDL GPU, are stunning: Using over 220 million transistors it supports a 256-bit interface for an effective memory bandwidth of 32 GB per second which delivers 525 million vertices, 5.6 billion textured pixels per second. The specifications for the GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL take these numbers up yet another notch to 35.2GB/s throughput, 600 million vertices and 6.4 billion textures pixels. Both GPU's feature NVIDIA's industry leading CineFX 3.0 technology allowing unprecedented special effects to be processed in real-time
Both the GeForce 6800 Ultra and GT GPU's are built on an AGP 8X board and include 256MB of GDDR3 memory for use in the most demanding graphics applications. They are the first cards available to support the DVI standard dual link digital signal specification from the two DVI ports they feature. This capability is required to drive the new 30-inch LCD, high resolution Apple Cinema HD display. The combination of a GeForce 6800 GT DDL or GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL graphics card with a dual processor Power Mac G5 driving two 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Displays is the definitive tool for the creative professional.
*Special note on the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT DDL and the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL: due to size of these advanced graphics cards, the adjacent PCI or PCI-X slot will be blocked and reduces the number of available PCI or PCI-X slots from three to two.
