HardOCP talked to a few graphics card makers about the problem with the GeForce 8800 GTX:
Dean Brady, Director of Marketing – BFGTech
BFG Technologies has worked closely with NVIDIA to correct a BOM error in initial units built by NVIDIA’s contract manufacturer. BFG and NVIDIA engineers have corrected the problem and tested all units in inventory. We are working diligently to recall boards that have shipped with this error. There will be clear markings on the fixed boards that BFG is implementing to allow consumers to easily distinguish which board they have. This will not delay the launch and customers can be confident that the products they purchase will be supported by BFG’s legendary support and true lifetime warranty.
