WE'VE HAD MANY mails from people who want to buy Geforce 6800 Ultra cards in Europe and US but they simply could not find any of them, anywhere. We asked Nvidia about this but Nvidia said that it doesn't have any yield problems and that shops have Geforce 6800 Ultra in quantity. We neglected to check on Geforce 6800 Ultra retail availability as our gimlet-like eyes were fixed on the catastrophically hard to get X800XT PE card.
Many of our readers pointed that you cannot find any Geforce 6800 Ultra apart from one Gainward 850 € water cooled 6800 Ultra in retail or "etail". I checked myself and you can clearly see here that you won't find any available in either the Western or the Eastern reichs. Some shops have up to 20 reserved so if I was an Nvidia partner I would ship them to my customers if I had them. It's obvious that they don't have them.
