If they want to get rid of G80 cores, shouldn't they put the rest of the G80 cores they have on more cards?
The old 8800GTS used only 96 stream processors clocked @ 1200MHz and was based on the G80 architecture.
Recently, they released an 8800GTS with 112 stream processors clocked @ 1200MHz based on the G80 architecture, probably to get rid of their remaining chips. A lot of people confused it for the 8800GTS Revision (ie. Version 2)
Now, they are going to release the 8800GTS G92 Revision, which of course, is not only based on the superior G92 architecture, but will also have 128 stream processors clocked @ 1625MHz (the Ultra has 128 also, but only clocked at 1500MHz). This is the true 8800GTS Revision.
