Nvidia to rename its graphics chips

Logo NVIDIANvidia will be dropping the 8000- and 9000-series names, industry sources suggest.

Following a recent announcement that the company would lay off about 7% of its staff, it seems that Nvidia is busy bringing the company back on track. Rumor has it that the company will be announcing additional graphics cards in the GT200 series on October 15. Coinciding with the product launch, Nvidia is expected to depart from its sequence numbering system of the 8000- and 9000-series and transition to a system that is in line with the GT200 series.

Industry sources told TG Daily that while the 8000 series is being phased out, all 55 nm 9000-series GPUs will carry a G100-series name. By the end of 2008, Nvidia will be offering today??™s 9000 series as G100, GT120, GT130, GT140 and GT150 models.

When the 2009 45 nm GPUs arrive, which seems to be the case around Q1 or Q2, Nvidia will have fully transitioned to the new branding structure: Enthusiast GPUs will be integrated into the GTX200-series, performance GPUs into the GT200-series, mainstream GPUs into the GS200-series and entry-level products into the G200-series.

The new branding should clear up some of the confusion in Nvidia??™s product lineup today.
