Maybe some bs explanation and/or clock speeds and such. But neilz even said 2 weeks ago that final clocks hadn't been finalized. I feel like they started their ad campaign a bit too soon, thought they could squeeze under a tight timeline from computex to aug 8th. I know communication between engineers and marketing can be difficult, but timelines are universal. I highly doubt they are happy about it either and marketing probably didnt even know until Tuesday that it would be pushed.
Could also be a supply constraint of some sort making supply atm impossible. Most lightnings have been paper launched a few weeks prior to release. In my eyes, 8/28 has to be a hard launch or it will be tough to convince many not to at least wait and see the 9970.
