GF 6800 onboard video processor functionality If you read this thread N V News you will see that there is a big chance that video processing fuctions will never work in Nvidia 6800 cards I just posted this over at anandtech.... for those that arnt members there.... I've been following this thread since day one and only now have I registered... oh well it's a sad sad day.... I just got off the phone to nvidia UK, i'm really suprised she phoned me back as from past experience the customer service has been really bad with nvidia. She found out some information from the engineers. Anyway... this is what she said: The video processing functions will never work on the 6800, this is due to a hardware failure within the processing unit. The later cards will work fine, e.g. 6600 series, 6200 series and soon to come 6700 series. I asked if an updated driver would enable the video processing and she explained that the fault is hardware so even a driver update would not fix the problem. I did not ask if this affected the PCI-E versions so this is only relevant to AGP version of the 6800.... maybe it affects the PCI-E too? Anyway does anyone else feel they have been conned not just by nvidia but by it's reseller partners? It clearly says on my box about the video capabilities. I'll be doing an RMA on this card and swapping it for something that is usefull to me. Kind of ironic that the lower end cards have more "working" capabilities than the king of the hill 6800 shame on you nvidia and all it's partners that couldnt be bothered testing the cards before selling it. Hoping we wouldnt notice???? fools.
