GPUZ reports my BFG GeForce 7600 OC GS AGP as as G71 when I expect it should be a G70

I just added a BFG GeForce 7600 OC GS AGP to my collection and was rather surprised when GPUZ reported it as a G71. I think this is incorrect for the following reasons:
  1. The BFG GeForce 7600 OC GS AGP was released on 02-Feb-2006, see https://www.neoseeker.com/Articles/Hardware/Reviews/bfg7800gs_agp/
  2. The G71 was released on 28-Sep-2006, see https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/?generation=GeForce 7 AGP&memsize=256 MB&interface=AGP 8x&sort=generation
  3. NvAPI_GPU_GetShortName() reports G70
  4. NaAPI_GPU_GetArchInfo() reports 040 07 A1 which is a G70, G71 would start 040 09
  5. The NVidia Chip ID is 0x047300A1 which is a G70, G71 would start 0x049
  6. It says G70 at offset 0x1E8 in a dump of the BIOS.
  7. A dump from https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios...nterface=AGP&memType=GDDR3&memSize=256&since= says G71 at offset 0x19F in the BIOS.
Should GPUZ report G70 and if so would you like me to validate a fixed version ?

BTW this is another AGP card that GPUZ reports as supporting Resizable BAR, this time on W7 x32. It also reports the CPU core temperature as 100°C when P4s don't report their core temperatures, only Core 2 and later do.

I remembered that MSR 0x019C has a reading valid bit 31 which as I expected is not set. Given this GPUZ should not report a CPU temperature.

It's strange that given the clocks are @ 0 MHz and the memory @ 0 MB the plots look to be at 100%
