    Pill Monster, A3 is the revision of the G80 core. A3 are the better one, car run faster.. if you were lucky you can get A3 on 8800gts too (that's my case \o/).

    You obv do not read the right sites, the peep above can educate you better. ;)


    Quoted :

    " The new G80 A3 revision consumed 5W less, add to this lower memory voltage. But due to the latter they had to use very expensive 0.8ns memory that could be stable at 1080 MHz even at reduced voltage. "


    Again the Memory is officially rated for 2400mhz (DDR speed) but not at this lower voltage (going by Samsung Spec Sheet for Chips).

    Advise you make sure your 100% correct before snappy tone next time. :)

    yeah bliss007 is correct.. A3 silicon was only for Ultra and had minor optimizations and higher clocks..

    i had a factory watercooled leadtek 8800Ultra.. great card indeed.. and very hot.. like all NV's monstor GPU's :D

    To be fair, once the Ultra had been out a long time, the later GTX's and other 8800's were also A3's. :)

    Take some of your own advice..

    The point in my post was that the GTX and Ultra are the same basic card except the Ultra has higher clocks, you still haven't brought anything to the table to disprove what i said..;)

    Whatever core revision each card has doesn't really change anything, I don't want to get into a debate involving semantics - and I'm quite well educated thanks..:)
