In this updated review we witnessed the true capabilities of Gaiward's CoolFX 6800 Ultra. In the previous review, this card won CDRinfo's Best Performance Award and here again justifies even more it's perfect performance.
An other conclusion the tests showed is that if you intend to upgrade your PC think twice for the CPU. The resulting fps of both systems showed an overall 15% boost with the Athlon 64 3800+ of the Test System 2.
Now if you already are the owner of a latest generation VGA card and you have a CPU lower than 3.0GHz then better think about getting a faster CPU for your next upgrade. As I have already mentioned in previous reviews it's like driving a Hayabusa motorbike in a traffic jam. You can't achieve the speed you desire. But if you are satisfied with the overall performance of your system then you don't need to proceed on an expensive CPU purchase that will take you to the limits.
If you already have a 3 GHz (3000+) system and you think about getting the best VGA card then the Nvidia 6800 Ultra is a good purchase. Keep in mind though that there are cheaper solutions offering good performance even with the latest games.
On future reviews you will have the opportunity to see the performance of other powerful VGA cards currently available in the market, in order to have a more general aspect.
