NVIDIA responds to GeForce 8800 GTX issues

HardOCP spoke with NVIDIA's General GPU Group Manager Usjesh Desai about the problem with NVIDIA's GeForce 8800 GTX graphics cards. Here's what he had to say:
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.
