Conclusion: This change gave the card a slight performance advantage in many of our tests. Casual gamers looking for a little more performance than stock will appreciate this, as the peace of mind of remaining under warranty will assuage you, while the hardcore crowd can, and probably will attempt to push the card even further. This solution is the best of both worlds for both sets of consumers.
Conclusion: After running the Gigabyte GV-N68U256D through a battery of our time consuming tests, we can safely say that the Gigabyte GeForce 6800 Ultra graphics card performed just as well as the MSI counterpart at stock speeds (which by the way is already speedier than NVIDIA's recommended clock speeds). Although similar in performance, our nod goes to the Gigabyte GV-N68U256D as its operating temperatures measured much less that the MSI NX6800 Ultra-T2D256.
