New names for Nvidia graphics cards - new clues
As it has been repeatedly reported, Nvidia seems to plan to phase-out the Geforce 8 series and to transfer the Geforce 9 series to the current name schema of the GT200 GPUs. Now new reports about further renaming were revealed.
Besides the adjustment of the 55 nanometer produced Geforce 9 chips to the current name schema (they will represent the G100 series), there are new hints now that the mobile graphics chips will receive new names, too. The GPUs soon to be produced in 45 nanometers structure will fit into the new system, too: High-end GPUS will be called GTX200, the performance cards GT200, the middle-class GS200 and the low-end G200.
The information about the extensive renaming actions can, according to VR-Zone, be seen in the Geforce drivers already:
NVIDIA_G92.DEV_0615.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTS 150"
NVIDIA_G94.DEV_0626.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 130"
NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0646.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 120"
NVIDIA_G98.DEV_06E6.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce G 100"
NVIDIA_G92.DEV_060A.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 180M"
NVIDIA_G92.DEV_0618.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 170M"
NVIDIA_G94.DEV_0631.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTS 160M"
NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0651.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce G 110M"
NVIDIA_G96.DEV_0652.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce GT 130M"
NVIDIA_G98.DEV_06EC.1 = "NVIDIA GeForce G 105M"
Nivida still didn't officially give any statements regarding the matter.
