The card is nothing more than a way of sticking it to AMD and ATI - in a marketing sense - in regards to their upcoming R600 launch later this month. Much like Intel seem to be trying their very hardest to destroy AMD, Nvidia is also giving it their best shot, too.

XFX’s 8800 Ultra XXX screams along at top speed leaving every other single GPU solution in the dust, there is no doubt about that. However it is safe to say that with word on the street that supply and quantities is very low, Nvidia is not expecting to sell many of these graphics cards. We have even heard from some of Nvidia’s partners in Taiwan that they do not even want to touch the tweaked G80 chip in fear that they will not sell. Nvidia believe there will be a few handfuls of ultra high-end extreme users out there that will pay the money just to have the best of the best.
