Also, where you you find that info on the Nvidia site?
on the NVIDIA site they only mention that the Quadro FX go 1400 does support gddr3 (does support != does only support)
difference between the memory types is 'only' the clock rate: gddr up to 300 MHz, gddr2 up to no idea MHz, gddr3 up to 1.0 GHz and further
- around up to +1000 3dmark05 points
- around 5-10% more performance in games
- 10-15% more power needed and more heat caused
Btw: why are all so sure that Dell's NVIDIA Geforce 6800 go model is equiped with gddr3 memory? - since they have standing everywhere: DDR 256 MB...
