Default NVIDIA GF104 likely to be called the GTS450 or GTS460

If Nvidia cuts GF100 cleanly in half to get GF104, it will also suffer from the same handicap. If the GF104 has more than half the GF100's uncore, the price is paid in die area and power instead of performance. The GF104 looks to be about the size of AMD's Cypress HD5870, consume around the same power, and sit between the HD5770 and HD5830 in performance.

The short story is that when you have a chip that is too large, too hot, and badly underperforming, cutting it in half will still put you at the same ratio disadvantage against your competition's 'half' chip. GF104 is unlikely to change the game, either in performance or revenues. Nvidia will likely suffer from more than its current 60 percent die size disadvantage compared to the analogous ATI GPU. The more things change....
