AOpen Aeolus GeForce 6800 GT 256MB Review

HEXUS.net take a look at AOpen's 6800GT, providing next-generation performance at a slightly wallet-friendlier price than that of the 6800 Ultra or X800XT PE.
AOpen has achieved a low price by running with a completely reference card in every way, shape and form. The associated bundle, however, is non-reference. AOpen manages to bundle in a couple of reasonable retail games. That's more than can be said for a number of NVIDIA's other partners. Benchmark performance, by dint of the card's default 350MHz core and 1000MHz memory clocks, was also strictly reference, although reference equates to a massive step up from the previous generation's cards. Purchasing the second-highest card in the range often leads to decent overclocking results, as it often uses the same technology and setup as the premier card but runs at slightly slower speeds. That was the case here. 411MHz core and 1100MHz memory put the Aeolus GT above a default Ultra's clocks.
