You got it 100% correct. Some GeForce 8800 GTX boards that were built through our contract manufacturer had a simple BOM error - wrong resistor value. GeForce 8800 GTS boards are not affected by this. We have been working with our Add-In-Card vendors to change the resistor to the correct value. We should still be able to hit our hard launch this week (Nov 8th) with the new GeForce 8800 GTX boards, so this should not be an issue for end users.Source: HardOCP.
