I'm surprised how many people dont know this. But i read somewhere that the chips that Nvidia manufactures that have defects, they get put into cards like G80 8800GTS and GTX260 . The defective shaders or something like that is "disabled" . The perfect chips go into GTX280 and 8800gtx . This saves Nvidia money.
