Agreed. However, Devastater has the cleanest, most satisfying ring to it, in my eyes. Next up, however: NV30.

The GeForce name was clever as the first one sported the T&L engine that allowed for higher geometry while playing with an already known natural force.

Surely the NV30 will have some sort of cinematic feel to it in order to push the new tech.
That's Crazy!

It just occured to me that a really obvious name would be CineForce. However, I was really hoping to see Eclipse, but then again, I'll always call it NV30 anyway, just like the 9700 is R300, like Hammer is K8. Core names cut through all the marketing fluff and are much more precise.

CineForce would be kinda cool, but definetly not Eclipse or GeForce5.

Eclipse would make me only think of the car. "Hey, i just bought an Eclipse for a couple hundred bucks! No not the car!!!"

Geforce5 is boring, that'd be a silly as a Pentium5 (Penta means five, so it'd be the Fivium Five... LOL). And besides, with some of the new architecture in the NV30 it deserves to be called something better than the GeForce. It's not just some slight improvement from what I read, it's a new engineering (WOOHOO 3dfx engineers!!!). I like the "Force" in the name though... maybe some names like DarkForce (they'd get sues for sure), NvidiForce, AHorseIsAHorseOfCourseOfCourseForce
