Nvidia's renaming scheme revealed
by Slobodan Simic on02 October 2008
Geforce 178.15 holds the names
The guys over at Techconnect have poked around the latest .inf file and found some names that are new. We already wrote about the fact that Nvidia has plans for renaming/rebranding its cards and as for now the G92, G94 and the G96 will get new names soon.
If the 178.15 "inf" file is right, then the G92 based cards, currently known as the Geforce 9800 series, will be renamed to Geforce GTS 1xx, while the midrange G94 based cards, currently branded as the Geforce 9600 and 9500 will be known as the Geforce GT 1x0.
This new naming scheme should hopefully clear up the Nvidia roadmap mess, but this much rebranding is goingto confuse the market even more, especially as GTX, GTS, GT and GS just keep appearing and disappearing in the market.
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 might rebrand again
