That's weird. It doesn't even list the Pipes on the manufacturer site.

Only the model has "GS" in the name. Its actually just a regular 6800.

But what would a vanilla 6800 be doing w/ 16 pipes?

Buy it now then find out it doesnt have the 16 pipes then fight to get your money back because you thought it has 16 pipes, when it really has only 12.

It has 12 pipes, the same thing happened with the BFG 6800gs. There was a typo in the description and it was changed a week later (and the price was also raised 30 dollars).
