    What are the odds some of these are the same chips, given the timeframes involved?

    That made me understand why they release G92,so we can expected 2 version of GeForce9 first 65 nm and second 45 nm.

    These are SKU-codenames and no GPU-codenames...

    scheme:

    GPU:

    G"Generation"+"Performance-Classification: 0>2>...>8" -> G92

    GPU version:

    Gxx - "three digits(description of clock, active units, features like HDCP)" -> G92-270

    SKU-codename

    NB/D+"Generation"+SE/GS/GT/GTX -> D8P - (initial is secret?) (or NB8E-SE -> 8700M-GT)

    endconsumer-name:

    in this case: 8800 GT

    Whoever runs NVidia's marketing department deserves to be bludgeoned to death with Wirt's peg leg. As if videocards weren't confusing enough to the public, NVidia is taking yet another step backward by revamping their entire lineup and not changing any of the names. There will soon be three (3) completely different versions of the 8800GTS.

    But even that wasn't enough. They found it necessary to change the codenames, so the remaining 0.00012% of the population just says "screw it".

    The old 8800 GTS 320/640 will probably disappear very soon anyway.
    In fact, after the upcoming 8800 GTS 512 i would be very surprised if even the 8800 GTX/Ultra remained for much longer, other than to cater for the extremely small niche that will run Tri-SLI.
    Its single-GPU performance is very likely lower than the incoming "full" G92 product.

    Here's a hint:"The enemy had to replace its code books after they were stolen by James Bond".

    If you were trying hard to prevent leaks to the press about almost finished products, why would you make it easy for your competitor to extract information about products that are still far away from release?

    In other chip companies there's no correlation between the engineering name of the chip (say "Janus") and the product name communicated to customers ("TKS-4376"). When sales results are presented at the end of the quarter, we often have no idea what chips they're talking about. Why do you think you should have access to this information and what difference does it make anyway?

    Are these replacing other codenames? Or is this in addition to what already exists? I'm kinda confused...
