NVIDIA: There Will Be No GeForce 8800GS

NVIDIA's latest Windows XP ForceWare release notes on page 26(now fixed), appeared to reveal yet another new video card, the GeForce 8800GS. NVIDIA responded immediately to the rumours of this 8800GS model:
The initial release notes for the NVIDIA ForceWare 158 Driver had a typo that referenced a product that does not, and will not exist. NVIDIA has no plans to release a GeForce 8800 GS. We have corrected the mistake and will be replacing the document on our website.

I would have loved to see an 8800GS. Im sure they will bring it out soon, its just a marketing ploy.

I agree Eagle. It just makes no sense not to release a card in between the 8800GTS and the 8600GTS. The gap is just too large between the 2 in terms of performance. When they say they are not releasing an 8800GS, I bet it's because they will release a card in between the 2, but name it something different, perhaps 8600GTX?
