Geforce GTS 240/250: Nvidia might rename more graphics cards
According to media reports, Nvidia wants to adjust the names of older graphics cards for the Cebit. The Geforce 9800 GT and the 9800 GTX+ are supposed to be relabeled to Geforce GTS 240/250.
Several websites reported that Nvidia plans to push the renaming of Geforce graphics cards. The OEM versions of the Geforce 9500 GT and 9600 GSO have already been relabeled and the European consumer electronics trader Media Markt already offered PCs with them.
Now it seems like Nvidia will also rename the retail cards. According to reports , the Geforce 9800 GT and the Geforce 9800 GTX+ will be reintroduced with new names at the Cebit. Besides the labeling and the BIOS there won't be further changes.
|Graphics card (old)||Graphics card (new)||Code name|
|Geforce 9500 GT||Geforce GT 120||G96|
|Geforce 9600 GSO||Geforce GT 130||G92/G94|
|Geforce 9800 GT||Geforce GTS 240||G92/G94|
|Geforce 9800 GTX+||Geforce GTS 250||G92b|
In early January Nvidia already changed the names in the mobile GPU sector. Nvidia did not comment on the subject. We expect more information during Cebit 2009.
