Layout of GeForce FX5950 and 6800


Jun 26, 2004
I already have the GF 5950 Ultra , but I want to buy the 6800 Ultra .. I already have watercooling for my gfxcard , so my question is; is the ram and gpu in the same place in the new 6800 ultra as in GF fx 5950 Ultra ?

My cooler cools both the ram and gpu (Like Gainward's cooling)
Actually there is a slight difference, but it's nothing but a benifit really, no ram on the BACK of the GF6800 series.

So if you were cooling both sides you can sell part of your setup, and if you were only cooling the front before then now you have access to all the ram. :cool:
