Arrow Nvidia to rename its graphics chips

Quote:
Rumor has it that the company will be announcing additional graphics cards in the GT200 series on October 15.

Industry sources told TG Daily that while the 8000 series is being phased out, all 55 nm 9000-series GPUs will carry a G100-series name. By the end of 2008, Nvidia will be offering today’s 9000 series as G100, GT120, GT130, GT140 and GT150 models.

It will help put things in perspective. I've yet to understand why they keep making these mistakes. They had the Geforce 3, if they wanted to number differently they should have gone to 420/440/460 instead of 4x00. That way they could have gone for ages without changing the frigging names again. 400/500/600---1300-1500-1700-2000... That's like more than 20 years of hardware without changing anything in the naming scheme or the names becoming huge...

Eh, this will be less confusing. Maybe I'll wait till they make the changes to sell my 8800GTX on ebay. People will think its 88 times as fast as a GTX100.

You misunderstood my post. I believe its correct that they are changing it. I was talking about previous naming mistakes made in the past.

Now we can just hope that they won't rename small speedboosts ever again as a new generation, right?
They should stop all renaming and go back to nice and clean NVxx naming..

I agree.

As far as I'm concerned, G80 / GeForce 8800 = NV50. The 9800 series did not go beyond that. Therefore the GT200 / GTX 280 = "NV55" or "NV57" and we won't be getting "NV60" until Nvidia introduces a truly new architecture that supports DX11 & SM 5.0. Anything short of that will just be another NV5X.

True, this is what it would look like using the old good NVxx naming.
It is so easy to see when there are any new features and when it is just a speed bump. (like. GTX2xx..)
Next generation NV6X should be something interesting again..

Becouse actual card naming is handled by marketing people and we know what they can come up with.
