NVIDIA will launch their new flagship 8800 Ultra graphics card very shortly, this to put some more pressure on AMD/ATI with the upcoming release of their R600 based cards. Specifications are now confirmed and XBit Labs have decided to overclock an 8800 GTX so that it will perform similarly to that of the Ultra variant to give everyone a good idea of what the gains will be.

Nvidia Corp., the largest supplier of standalone graphics processing units (GPUs), is set to release a new graphics card that promises to offer boosted performance compared to existing high-end offerings, but also come at a higher price.
