    Was browsing the nvidia site to research the 8800GT card and spotted two new cards that they are introducing (can't remember the model, 260 & 280 or something). I'm just wondering if they've made a typo or what because both cards have over 190/220 processor cores respectively.

    They mean shader units :)

    They can pack a hell of a lot of those in gpu's. It's parallel processing on steroids :)
