G factor (wikipedia entry)

#1
I found this in the Wikipedia entry on the G factor:

"A number of candidate genes have been reported to be associated with intelligence differences, but the effect sizes have been small and almost none of the findings have been replicated. No individual genetic variants have been conclusively linked to intelligence in the normal range so far."

I agree that the effect sizes are small but, as I understand it, several authors have found genetic variants that are associated with normal variation in intelligence. What is going on here?
