    hard to get interested, since similar products already exist (8800 GTS G92 and 9800GTX ) .

    the price is what will make it interesting - this could be a 55nm 8800GTS G92. If so, it'll clock quite well.

    I think it is a typo on newegg's part, it wouldn't be the first. Asus' site makes no mention of it having 128 Steam Processors. I would think they would make a bigger deal about it if it was true.

    Plus they are only saying it is 22% faster, it has nearly a 22% overclock on it(actually about 21%), plus the memory overclock. So I would think if it did have the extra steam processors, it would be more than 22%.

    both reviews on newegg claim its got 128 shaders, but i wonder if they even checked in GPU-Z or simply assumed it was correct.

    Some one buy it, and then when you get it and it doesn't have 128-SPs, bitch at newegg until they give you a refund.

    Even if it is true, I don't see the point. With the 9800GTX and G92 8800GTS so cheap, I don't see the reason for something like that.

    To get a free card? Why not if you can get away with it.

    I second that thought. I've seen plenty of Newegg's description errors/typos to know that you shouldn't get your facts from their site.

    I haven't found one other source that states the card comes with 128 SPs. The majority of web sites reporting about the card, state that it comes with the usual 112 SPs, and is just a refresh of the 8800GT, overclocked to the extreme though.

    If you're looking at something in this performance class/price range just stick with a 9800GTX(+); you'll avoid any hassles with specifications and you'll know exactly what you're getting.
