The Ultra hasn't done great thus far. The high price tag, lack of availability and the high price tag meant that no one could really justify the high price tag. Oh, and did I mention it was very expensive?
With that said though, ultimately if you're feeling pretty hardcore and you've got the bucks to splash, an SLI Ultra setup in conjunction with a 680i SLI motherboard is the ultimate setup for a lot of people.
If it wasn't expensive enough already, Leadtek turn around and stick a big phat water cooling solution on it to jack the price up that bit more. Is it really worth it though? The biggest bad boy at the moment in the air cooled arena is the XFX 8800 Ultra XXX edition that packs quite a punch.
We've been impressed with the Ultra in the past but that was before the HD 2900 XT really began to shine. Can the Leviathan Ultra from Leadtek impress us or is it just a big waste of cash?
