9800 gt?

Specs: XP-SP3, E2180 /3GB
Hi all, I recently opened "system information" in the nvidia control panel and it showed
my 9800 GT (1GB) having 64 stream processors.
I don't understand this, because from what i know it's supposed to show 112 instead of 64.
Also both GPU-Z and Everest UE 5 show the same thing (64 unified shaders).
Is there something wrong with these readings or am I not reading them correctly?

Here's the report from Everest:

Even with the new drivers (185.85), it's still the same thing.
The reason i'm using old drivers is because i'm having
problems with some games (Bioshock, Clive Barker's undying) with
the new drivers installed.

I don't have any performace issues with games or anything,
(Crysis GPU Test I get 26FPS All Settings Set to "High" 0AA 0AF 1440X900).

I just don't know why it shows "64 stream processors" instead of "112"

That must be a bug in the program, or it's only counting the primary stream processors.

Don't worry about it.
