Default GPUZ says i have 216 shaders but newegg says otherwise. Who to believe?

I ordered this card from newegg:

Newegg.com - EVGA 896-P3-1260-AR GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

It SHOULD only have 192 shaders, but GPU-Z is telling me that it has 216. What should I believe here?

Sounds like they gave you a core 216 version instead. I would trust GPU-Z over the egg, it just reports what hardware the card has. So you got a better card for free, dont complain to them

Look for a manufacturers product number on it and check that way...if it has to be registered usually they have an automated detect based on the serial number you enter. That should also id it for you as a confirmation to gpuz.

Wow, seems like I could have indeed gotten lucky.

This thread has a similar mixup: GTX 260 192 show 216 shader cores? - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

I think he meant that people who ordered the 260 were getting the 280 instead. Unless I totally misunderstood what you said..
