Default I find it unacceptable that mobile GPUs use multiple configs with the same model

555M: Can be GF106 or GF108. GF108 has 96 stream processors, GF106 has 144. GF106 can be 192-bit or 128-bit.

560M: 128-bit version has less ROPs, lower fill rate, and lower memory bandwidth than the 192-bit version

635M: Can be GF106, GF108, or GF116. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS?!?!

The @nvidiaoptimus account on Twitter told me this:

GPUs are named via performance level, not specs. All have about the same perf levels.
It's not true and down right deceitful.

Bring back the SE, Pro, XT, Ultra, etc if you need more flexible labeling.

Heck even the MX label from the 520MX would work.
