Seems like Charlie D. was right after all - at least with regard to GF110 being really a GF100B. That's the impression you get when trying to flash a new BIOS onto your brand new Geforce GTX 580 with the BIOS flash tool called nvflash.exe.

The „--list” command shows - surprise, surprise - a list of adapters, nvflash thinks are in the system. When you do this, however, the result is as follows:

PC Games Hardware mentioned this on their german website, as did the programmer of tool Nvidia Inspector in the german 3DCenter Forum also (and already a while ago, it seems).
Let's not forget, though, as douglar said @ semiaccurate, that:

Nvidia added a 3rd transistor type, reworked a lot of cells in the cores, and then they also did a lot of interconnect redesign, which is the biggest change & allows Nvidia to get good yields at higher clocks when more than 6 banks of cuda cores are connected to it.
