Default unknown board ??

Just installed the lastest Nvidia drivers and Nvidia-Settings, and must say, you guys did an excellent job with them! I'm getting a better performance boost in everything and UT2004 and my other games like Battlefield 1942 run smoother, faster, and looks so much better! Plus I love what you guys did with the new Nvidia-settings! Nice to be able to change my resolution from it now!

But I have an odd thing. When I do:
pieman@linux ~ $ glxinfo | grep render
direct rendering: Yes
OpenGL renderer string: unknown board/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW!
GL_NVX_conditional_render, GL_SGIS_generate_mipmap, GL_SGIS_texture_lod,
pieman@linux ~ $
It says unknown board... Everything works great, better than the old 8774 drivers, but why does it say this? I'm running a 6800GT Pci-Express on A AMD X2 4800+ and my distro is Gentoo.

I attached a bug report and my xorg.conf.
