8800 GTS 512MB launch brings more confusing news.

Happy release day everyone! I have added all the cards that I have found specifications for so far and I hope to add a few more before the day is done. Of the 14 cards we have listed, 6 are available right now from Newegg. That is pretty cool. Now it is time for the not so happy news...

[H]ard|OCP received some puzzling information from BFG today that is turning my smile upside down:

"I just got off the phone with BFG Tech and NVIDIA has been doing some strange things lately. As of this morning, the GeForce 8800 GTS 640MB (unsure on the 320MB) will have its stream processors officially increased to 112, the same as the GT. This should put the GTS back ahead of the GT as per the paper specs."

Waaaaa?!?! So does this mean that all 640MB 8800 GTSs on shelves and in our PCs will now have 112 shaders? Are they going to unlock them via a BIOS/driver update somehow? Will only new 640MB 8800 GTSs have 112 shaders? Either way this is going to cause some headaches for us here at GPUReview.com.

I am going to go review hunting now and I hope to bring you one of my patented overclocking tables once I find enough reviews that have overclocking data in them.
