Default Re: Why isn't there a 6600 Ultra?

The reason they don't make a 6600 Ultra is because it would wreck their pricing scheme. The lower the number at the moment,the lower the price. See, they don't want to confuse dumb people

Good point, but I still wouldn't have the money and I have an SLI board with just one 6600 GT so the next time I upgrade it's gonna be a 6600 GT and then I'll be set for another year or two in the graphics department.

Well said Gian. Venice cores should be able to buy on Friday WOOT! Xbitlabs managed to get a 3800+ to over 3.0GHz and get a screenshot, on a basic heatsink! My lovely Venice...
