Their plan was to discontinue the 192SP version and replace it completely with the 216SP version without having to come up with a new name for it.
.... yes I know, that's exactly what I said. The retailers and as you pointed out some mfg's themselves clearly labeled the 216SP in their descriptions despite NVIDIA's identical naming scheme.


Yes, fine the situation isn't the exact same, but the idea would easily cross over with retailers ensuring that they appropriately label the products clearly.

Sorry, I didn't read your post properly. I thought you were talking about nVidia, not retailers.
