Albatron GeForce 6800GT Videocard Review

Albatron GeForce 6800GT Videocard Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Albatron's 6800GT is not quite as fast 6800 Ultra version, but with its core running at 350MHz it is still plenty powerful!

Advanced Benchmarks: UT2003, Conclusions

Unreal Tournament 2003

Source: Epic

Unreal Tournament 2003 is the sequel to 1999's multiple 'Game of the Year' award winner. It uses the very latest Unreal Engine technology - where graphics, sound and game play are taken beyond the bleeding edge. Unreal Tournament 2003 employs the use of Vertex as well as Pixel Shaders and it's recommended that you use a DirectX 8 videocard to get the most out of the game.

It looks like we'll have to get another game to test out AA with seeing as the Albatron 6800GT videocard gets about the same framerates at each setting. Simply amazing numbers... man I would love to have this card in my system!

Lighting fast! The Albatron 6800GT

For some reason brand loyalty is especially strong in the videocard market. Because of this many ATi loyalists have counted nVidia out for the game lately. With results like those we've just shown you, nVidia is certainly addressing their problems and producing some very quick technology.

This of course is good news for you and I, since healthy competition should in theory keep prices down. It's also nice to see that nVidia have worked around the issues that plagued its GeForceFX line; namely noise from the videocard and comparatively poorer image quality.

While the GeForceFX 5800 Ultra was dubbed the 'vacuum cleaner' for its noisy heatsink, the Albatron 6800GT is nearly silent under power. Pretty amazing when you consider it's single-slot heatsink is cooling 222 million (GPU) transistors!

Overall I'd still give ATi the edge when it comes to image quality, but nVIDIA has certainly improved their products by a large margin, and IQ on a GeForce 6800 platform is very nice indeed. Ultimately though, the Albatron 6800GT is great 8X AGP videocard. Sure it retails for $550 CDN ($430 US), but it is easily one of the fastest on the block. Compared to some other 6800GT's on the market, you might even save enough to buy yourself a copy of Doom 3. So, for those of you looking for a lightning fast AGP videocard in the nVidia colours, the Albatron 6800GT is fine example of what makes this such an exciting time!
