DIAMOND Radeon HD 7790 1GB 256-bit?

Can any one comment on this? Newegg is selling a Diamond Radeon HD 7790 1GB card with a stated 256-bit bus width. I assumed it was a typo so I checked out the specs on Diamond's website, and I turned up something even more curious than this abnormally high bus width. According to Diamond, their HD 7790 has 2000+ stream processors which is about as much as the 7970. Are these just a bunch of coincidental typo's or is this some sort of super-7790 that I've never heard of!?

Definitely a typo on the streamers part, they claim it has 2048, which is the same exact spec as the hd 7970. Probably got the two confused.. 7970, 7790...

as for the memory interface, it's possible that it has double the bus width as the reference, but i'm not 100 on that.

Yeah that makes sense about the typo. Although I'm 99.99% sure that the 7790 is offered strictly in 128bit which was one of its downfalls. But man I'd be so pissed if I bought Diamond's card based strictly off of their specs. >.<
