NVIDIA nForce 780i delayed to December?

Nordic Hardware claims NVIDIA is having some problems with its nForce 780i chipset:
issues with Intel's recently unveiled Penryn processors. The exact issues remains illusive but apparently the board will be delayed an additional two months and boards are not expected until December. A while back we reported about the nForce 780i being pretty much just a nForce 680i with a PCIe bridge chip and that they perform identically, and to be honest we sincerely hope that we're wrong about that one. Just adding a PCIe 2.0 bridge chip and calling it a whole new chipset is a slap in the consumers' face.

The 680 was slap in the face! Now they want to kick us in the nuts!
