We could...though it would have no impact upon the NV30's name...That has likely been chosen ages ago and the marketing dept has begun using the name......

It couldn't hurt though...

I second that, i really like those names.

CineFx or all the combinations sucks big time.

Heres what i think:
1-) Thunderbolt or just thunder.
2-)It could also be Atila (hhm no too much ATI)
3-)VIThor (VI from Visual Proc....), i dont like it very much
4) Sauron (from LOFR)
5-) Poseidon
6-)Nautilus


hhmm, well?
1) Too similar to AMD Tbird
2) Kinda lame
3) ugh
4) What about good christians? They wont buy an evil card! Besides, this "evil badass" schtick has been going on for too long already.
5) Of all the Greek gods... you had o pick that one.
6) Ugh!

I'm liking the 3dfx codenames right now, Rampage, Napalm, etc.

Maybe some military style name would be good?

Or maybe a techname

Oh, I dunno

Napalm sounds pretty sweet as far as I'm concerned...

I'm not one for the techie-style names....I like something that makes the card sound as great as it performs...

I know the perfect name........just call it the NV30!!!!!! It's perfect! Why do they ahe to bother to call it a Geforce? I actually like calling it the NV30, it sounds more intelligent.

There is nothing confusing about the 9700 name. ??

Nothing new, though, since ATI began that game with the R8500 mess to nVidia's Ti500 and continued it with the R9000 fiasco.
AFAIK, the 8500 name was set before the GF3 Ti series was announced. How is 8500 confusing?

IMO, the "fiasco" is naming a GF2 chip a GF4 and trying to pass it off as a true GF4. If anyone "started it," it was NVIDIA.
